The dispute between Minnesota lawmakers and the state lottery regarding online gaming services has taken a turn since state governor Mark Dayton vetoed the bill to stop the online initiative.
The bill would have banned instant-play lottery games and the sale of lotto tickets at gas pumps and ATMs.
"With all due respect ...it appears to me that the Executive Director [of the lottery] is operating within the scope of his legislatively-established authority," the governor said.
Republican Party state Representative Joe Hoppe said, "In effect what the governor is saying is, it's OK for his lottery director, without consent of the Legislature ... to sell lottery tickets anywhere, anyhow in the state of Minnesota.
"I don't think that's right, and I think an overwhelming majority of the Legislature agrees with me, and this will not stand.
"We were more measured and more moderate, and now the governor has thrown all that out the window.'
