Governor Tom Corbett's administration is seeking ways to generate additional revenue.
On Friday, the administration announced plans to possibly privatize the management of the $3.5 billion lottery system under a 20-year agreement.
In April, the administration issued a request for qualifications from interested companies and believes that expanding the Pennsylvania Lottery to include keno and online games will be one of the best ways to produce more revenue.
Lottery sales increased last fiscal year by 8.5% and opponents of privatization question why Corbett would want to pay a private company when sales are already steadily increasing.
The money supports programs for the elderly, including transit, prescription drugs, senior centers and long-term care services.
