Virginia Lottery; personal identifying information of prize winners; Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Provides that a lottery prize winner may request the Virginia Lottery to withhold from public disclosure his name and other personal identifying information for a period of one year after the date of winning the prize, except that the prize amount and the hometown of the prize winner shall continue to be disclosed as provided in current law. The bill also amends the FOIA exemption for the Virginia Lottery to provide that the personal identifying information of a lottery winner is exempt from mandatory disclosure for one year if the lottery winner has opted to have his personal identifying information withheld from disclosure.
