A pilot program allowing the Illinois Lottery to sell tickets online will expire before the end of the month.
There's no time for lawmakers to keep the program alive before then. The House adjourned until April.
Republican Rep. Ed Sullivan from Lake County sponsored a measure to make the pilot program permanent.
"Because it's a process that has done well," Sullivan said, "and it's done well for bringing money into our schools."
But Democrats prevented it from advancing.
