House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session

Subject: Cosponsorship: Confidentiality of Lottery Winners
In the near future, I plan to reintroduce legislation (HB 1893 of 2013-2014) that would amend Act 91 of 1971, known as the State Lottery Law. The bill would amend the Lottery Act to allow a lottery winner to choose whether or not he or she wants to disclose their name or other personal information in a multistate lottery game. The city and county of residence of a prize winner would not be considered confidential information.

My bill would protect lottery winners from criminals and scam artists that pry on big jackpot lottery winners. It is my belief, that lottery winners from Pennsylvania should have the option whether not he or she wants to disclose their name or stay anonymous. If you share this belief, I hope you join me in cosponsoring this legislation.
