DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Iowa Lottery wants Congress to turn down proposals to authorize federal regulation of internet gambling.

Lottery CEO Terry Rich recently traveled to Washington to lobby on the issue, saying the federal government should not infringe on states' rights to implement and regulate internet gaming.

The Iowa Lottery has no immediate plans to offer internet gaming, but Rich says he's concerned about an internet gambling proposal recently circulated by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
