DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa legislators say they are satisfied with how the Iowa Lottery handled a mysterious, now-withdrawn claim for a $14.3 million jackpot.
Lottery officials told members of the Government Oversight Committee on Tuesday they're also comfortable with the laws in place to protect the lottery.
Lottery officials took questions from lawmakers about the matter, which began when Bedford, N.Y., lawyer Crawford Shaw sent in the winning ticket. After lottery officials questioned him about it, Shaw on Thursday withdrew his claim for the jackpot.
Rep. Chris Hagenow, a Windsor Heights Republican, says people should have a high level of confidence in the lottery. And Sen. Tom Courtney, a Burlington Democrat, says no changes are needed to strengthen protections.
The Iowa Attorney General and Department of Criminal Investigation continue to investigate the matter.
