DIGEST OF SB0298 (Updated March 11, 2009 11:26 am - DI 14)

Various lottery matters. Authorizes the lottery commission to obtain an individual's Social Security number in the course of an investigation of a vendor or retailer. Extends the period in which an instant prize may be claimed from 60 to 180 days after the end of the lottery game. Provides that the right to a prize in the state lottery is not considered an account for purposes of the Uniform Commercial Code. (This provision eliminates a conflict between the lottery law, which does not permit the right to a prize to be assigned, and the Uniform Commercial Code, which does.) Requires the lottery commission to deduct from a lottery prize amounts intercepted by law for payment to the state and pay the balance of the prize to the prize winner. (Current law requires the lottery commission to transfer the prize to the auditor of state who makes the deduction and pays the balance to the prize winner.)
