BUZZ: Curtis Loftis is giving away $400 million

— State Treasurer Curtis Loftis is trying to give away $400 million -- and you could already be a winner!

Seriously, the treasurer's office operates something called the "unclaimed property fund." We have written about this before. Most of the money is from life insurance policies where insurance companies could not locate the rightful heirs. But it also includes things like unclaimed stock.

And now there is more money than ever:

We would check ourselves, but we're waiting until the fund reaches at least $500 million.

The State is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news.

We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point.
