New York senator moves to allow anonymity for lottery winners
Some lottery winners would rather not let their names be known, and New York state senator George Maziarz wants to let them.
Maziarz is working on a bill that would prevent lottery officials from publishing the names of winners who choose to remain anonymous.
This bill would negate current laws which require winners of more than $1 million to appear on a news conference to discuss their winnings. Recently, the New York Lottery has had bad press related to a stolen lottery ticket worth $5 million.
Maziarz hopes the bill will pass, allowing the winners to avoid a highly publicized issue.
So would you prefer to keep your winnings secret, or would you tell the world?
