Maui lawmaker Rep. George Fontaine, a Republican, is a former police captain. He said limits won’t keep desperate people from wasting their money.

“When they are faced with the frustration of having to pay that mortgage, feed their family and all of those things they are going to take that chance,” Fontaine said. “They are going to be playing that dollar everyday, hoping for that one-in-a-million chance they are going to win $100 million.”
