Lawmakers have fast-tracked a bill to ban lottery sales online, at the gas pump, and at ATMs

Two Gambling Prohibition/Charitable Gambling bills passed the State Departments committee to move on to the full Finance Committee. The bills would prohibit online, gas station pump, and ATM lottery sales. No new or significant testimony from either side was provided; Director Van Petten defended the actions of the Lottery, and the Petroleum Retailers joined Allied Charities to support the bills. S.F. 188 passed by a divided voice vote and S.F. 229 passed by a unanimous vote. (S.F. 188/S.F. 229)
