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?
