Bill to ban some businesses from lottery sales passes

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A bill to prohibit pawn shops, payday lenders and check-cashing businesses from selling lottery tickets has won final legislative approval.

The bill by Senator Kathleen Wilcoxson passed the state Senate Monday and now goes to the governor.

The state Lottery Commission voted last year to prohibit those businesses from selling lottery tickets but Wilcoxson says the law will prevent future Lottery Commissions from reversing the decision.

The commission had initially agreed to allow lottery sales at the shops but changed the rule after drawing criticism.
