Lottery winners want anonymity

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Arizona Senate is set to give final approval to a bill allowing lottery winners to stay anonymous.

Currently, Arizona law requires names to be disclosed under a public-records request, even if the winners don't come forward.

Backers say players who hit big jackpots face safety risks.

This bill comes after a Fountain Hills man won part of a $587 million Powerball Jackpot last year.
