      Agree.......at least that would give you time to figure things out, move if you wanted to and get settled with everything without having to worry about if someones gonna hound you for a handout or knock on your door for an interview.

        Amen, let's get rid of 10.8% lottery tax,

        and the ones that voted for it before they come up w/any more bright ideas.

        get rid of incumbents.

          What I would like to know, is what took them so long...?

          You can't get an expedient answer from a casino executive either,

          cause when you ask them a ?

          the first thing they think of is,

          "how does this effect me ?

                      You have to start some where, giving a person a year before announcing their name at least gives them time to get their affairs in order without out having to deal with people wanting their money.  Heck if they are smart I'd take the year to get out of NJ and down to a low tax state like Florida.  Hopefully after the politicians discover no harm is done if a winners name and address is not published and that will lead to new laws letting you accept you winnings in complete privacy.

                      All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

                          Not yet in effect yet. The Governor hasn't signed the bill as of today...

                            New Jersey lottery winners would have the option of staying anonymous for one year under a bill that is now headed to Gov. Chris Christie's desk.

                            The state Senate voted unanimously to pass the measure (A2982), which cleared the Assembly without opposition in December.

                            Under current law, winners' identities are public information, and the state Lottery Commission can publicize their names, hometowns, prize winnings and photographs.

                            Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D-Gloucester), a sponsor, said lottery winners face all kinds of pitfalls once people find out they've struck it right.

                            "Winning the lottery can be a blessing and a curse. Once their identities become public, lottery winners can become targets for unscrupulous individuals and scam artists looking to get a piece of their winnings. In worst case scenarios, lottery winners have been kidnapped and killed," Burzichelli said. "Unless the individual wants his or her identity revealed, residents who are lucky enough to win the lottery should have the option to remain private for the sake of their own safety."

                            The lottery laws in all states are out dated. In these modern times the winner should remain completely anomonous

                              Will it be effective immediately when he signs ?
