Proposal Would Let State Lottery Players Remain Anonymous
(Harrisburg, PA) -- The Pennsylvania House has passed a proposal that would let people who win the state lottery remain anonymous. The idea would be for people who win more than 100-thousand dollars. The Pennsylvania Lottery currently releases the first name and first initial of its winning ticket holders along with the city and county where they live. However, state law also says winners who create a trust can remain anonymous. The House proposal carries the idea further to let winners remain unnamed even without setting up a trust fund.
