S.F. No. 928 - State Lottery Prizes Payment to Persons Under The Age Of 18 Regulation Repeal
Author: Senator Mary Kiffmeyer
Prepared By: Stephanie James, Senate Counsel (651/296-0103)
Date: February 23, 2017


Section 1 [Prizes not assignable] is a conforming change necessitated by the repeal in section 2.

Section 2 [Repealer] repeals a provision relating to payment of lottery prizes to a person under the age of 18.

Under current law, a person under the age of 18 is not permitted to purchase or redeem a lottery ticket.  Nevertheless, the section of law repealed in section 2 of this bill provided for payment of a lottery prize won by a person under 18 to a parent, guardian, or adult family member for prizes under $5,000, or to a district court for prizes of $5,000 or more to be deposited or held for the person in a manner specified by the court.
