If you won the lottery, would you want everyone to know how much money you're getting? One state senator says you should have the option to remain anonymous.

Senator George Maziarz is proposing new legislation. He says right now, people in New York who win more than a million dollars have to be publicly identified and attend a news conference but he says all that attention is not always a good thing.

Some winners have reported being harassed or threatened.
