Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 272 - This act prohibits the State Lottery Commission, any employee of the State Lottery, and any organization contracted with the State Lottery from publishing identifying information of any person who wins the state lottery. A lottery winner may authorize in writing, on a form to be provided by the Lottery Commission, the public disclosure of his or her identifying information. Such form shall clearly state in at least a fourteen-point bolded font at the top of the form that a lottery winner is not required to sign such public disclosure form in order to claim his or her lottery winnings.

A violation of this act is a Class A misdemeanor.

This act is substantially similar to HB 402 (2021) and HB 1563 (2020).
