On April 30, 2012, Rep. Glenn Vaad and Sen. Cheri Jahn introduced HB 12-1359 – Concerning the Prohibition of Internet Lottery. This summary is published here courtesy of the Colorado Bar Association’s e-Legislative Report.
The bill prohibits the Colorado lottery commission from authorizing an internet lottery in which tickets, games, or shares are sold to a person by means of the internet, telephone, or other electronic device without physical presence of the person at a licensed lottery sales agent’s place of business. On May 2, the Finance Committee amended the bill and sent it to the floor for consideration on 2nd Reading.
Since this summary, the bill passed 2nd Reading in the House but was effectively killed before the 3rd Reading.
