ROSENBERG: MAYBE NEXT YEAR FOR ONLINE LOTTERY BILL

[Story Developing] Authorization for the Massachusetts Lottery to sell its products online is not likely to come in 2017, the Senate president said Wednesday morning, and action in 2018 may hinge upon whether online Lottery sales would harm small businesses. During a radio interview, Rosenberg acknowledged only a possibility of action on the issue in 2018.

Bills allowing the Lottery to sell its products online have been pending for years and Treasurer Deb Goldberg, who oversees the state Lottery, has ratcheted up her desire to move Lottery products online, citing a need to modernize the Lottery. - Colin A. Young/SHNS
