Governor Maggie Hassan has vetoed a bill that barred New Hampshire from disclosing the names of lottery winners.  Hassan said current law recognizes winners’ privacy by not requiring disclosure of their names proactively, but she said barring disclosure in all instances weakened public oversight and could lead to corruption. Hassan said New Hampshire has a long tradition of openness and transparency in how government funds are administered.
