Arkansas bill allows lottery winners to be anonymous

An Arkansas bill, filed by Rep. Jim Sorvillo, proposes that winners of the state lottery keep their identities secret.  The bill would exempt any records identifying lottery winners from the state’s Freedom of Information Act. Currently, winners can be discovered through public records requests. The bill would continue to allow the Internal Revenue Service and state auditors to know the identities of lottery winners.
