ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Lottery’s ability to sell paperless tickets over the Internet and at gas pumps is up for another legislative vote.

The House was due Tuesday to consider a measure barring the lottery from continuing virtual games that have been the source of controversy. The Senate has already backed new limitations on the lottery.

The lottery has been selling tickets online in what lawmakers have labeled a rogue action. Lottery officials have said they’ll need time to wind down the virtual games if lawmakers move ahead with the restrictions.
