Colorado moves to forbid online lottery sales
Question of the Day
DENVER (AP) - The Colorado House gave initial approval to prohibiting the sale of lottery tickets online.
The bill would forbid the Colorado Lottery Commission from approving such sales, and only in-person sales at licensed stores would be allowed. Lawmakers voted yes on the measure Monday with an unrecorded voice vote, setting up a final vote this week to refer the bill to the Senate.
Loveland Republican Rep. Brian DelGrosso, the sponsor of the bill, says it’s a way to curb underage gambling.
Denver Democratic Rep. Dan Pabon opposed the bill, calling it a protectionist measure to stop market forces. But DelGrosso noted that that the state lottery falls under the purview of lawmakers and it’s up to them to make decisions on how it’s run.
