Bill Regarding Lottery Games Reported to Full Senate

A bill removing restrictions on where certain traditional lottery games may be played is set for first reading before the full Senate on Monday.

The Senate convened at 11 a.m. Friday. to review reported bills. Eight bills were reported from respected committees to be read on first reading Monday, Jan. 14. Six bills were reported from the Committee on Finance, and two bills came from the Committee on Judiciary.

Senate Bill 27 was reported to the floor Friday. It removes restrictions on where certain traditional lottery games may be played. This is the same bill, Senate Bill 324 from the 2018 Regular Session. The bill removes current restrictions on where certain KENO themed lottery games may be played. Currently these games may only be played at locations that are authorized to sell alcohol. The bill would allow these games to be sold at all traditional lottery licensed retail locations.

Members of the Senate have expressed concern about whether the bill would enforce the bill in area where alcohol is served.

Senate Bills 252 to 284 also were introduced Friday.

The Senate also voted unanimously to adopt Senate Resolution 7 which recognizes Jan. 11 as Women and Girls Day at the capital.
