PHOENIX (AP) -

The Arizona Senate has delayed a second vote on a bill allowing lottery winners to keep their anonymity.

The Senate rejected Republican Rep. John Kavanagh's bill on a 16-11 vote last week and it was on the calendar for a reconsideration vote Tuesday but passed over. The delay signals the bill may still not have the support to pass.

The House voted 51-8 in favor of the bill in February.

Kavanagh wrote House Bill 2082 after a Phoenix-area man won half of a $587 million Powerball jackpot in November. His name was released under state public records laws.

Kavanagh says he believes making the man's name public put him and his family at risk and he wants to protect future winners.
