Undated (KELO-AM) The South Dakota Lottery has been given the go ahead to get the first comprehensive study of compulsive gambling in the state in more than 15 years.

Some critics say it's like the fox watching the hen house, but Lottery Executive Director Norm Lingle says they plan to pick an independent, non-biased organization to conduct the study.

He says the hope is that all sides of the gambling issue will have input and that study results will be back  before the end of the year.

The South Dakota Lottery Commission gave Lottery officials unamious approval to move forward.
