Union Files Suit over Possible Lottery Privatization
A union representing state workers has filed a lawsuit seeking to prevent Governor Tom Corbett's administration from privatizing the Pennsylvania Lottery.
Corbett is weighing a 20- to 30-year agreement with Camelot Global Services to manage the $3.5 billion lottery.
Currently, the 41-year-old lottery is run by the Department of Revenue, and profits benefit programs for the elderly, including transit, rent and property tax rebates, prescription drug assistance, senior centers and long-term care services.
AFSCME Council 13, which represents 233 lottery employees, filed suit in Commonwealth Court on Monday and is asking the court to keep the administration from implementing a private management agreement.
Corbett’s spokesman Kevin Harley calls the suit "frivolous” and says the state is doing its due diligence in examining the idea.
