Should New York Lottery winners have the right to remain anonymous? 

Personal privacy or public accountability?

A story on a bill in the New York State legislature that would allow lottery winners to remain anonymous has generated a lot of comment today. The arguments go like this:

 

-- Lottery winners' names should be kept private to shield them from harassment and money grubbers.

 

-- Lottery winners' names should be made public to increase accountability of the lottery. If you don't want to go public, don't play.

 

In New York, winners of $1 million or more have to appear at a news conference before they can claim their winnings. Most states have similar rules; just six allow anonymity, and Arizona is considering it.

The bill before the state Legislature -- sponsored by George Maziarz, R-Lockport -- would forbid the lottery from requiring winners to "perform public actions" to get their money.

 

 

The above bil was proposed in 2013, whatever happened to it?

We all get a lot out of lotteries!

    Probably died in committee and never made it to the full legislature for a vote.
