Michigan Senate bill seeks Internet lottery sales ban

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan Lottery wants to sell lottery games over the Internet, but the proposal could be running into roadblocks in the state Senate.  Senator Rick Jones, a former Eaton County sheriff, has introduced legislation this week making online lottery sales in Michigan illegal.

The mid-Michigan Republican says he thinks expanding the sales to someone's computer or smartphone will make it easier to become addicted to gambling, will make personal debt "skyrocket" by allowing credit cards to be used to buy tickets, and will deprive small businesses of sales and store traffic.
