(AP) -- West Virginia's Lottery will no longer have any input into a problem gamblers hot line, and its logo won't be included on hot line billboards and advertisements.

However, the lottery will continue to fund The Problem Gamblers Network.

The legislature approved a bill during the recent session that removes the Lottery Commission from any oversight of the program.

The measure gives control of the program to the Department of Health and Human Resources.
