A British firm will take over management of the Pennsylvania Lottery.
Governor Tom Corbett awarded the contract on Friday to Camelot Global Services in a deal that pledges $34-billions in profits to the state over the next twenty years. However, not everyone is happy about the deal, namely unions and Democratic lawmakers.
State Treasurer Rob McCord told the Associate Press that Camelot is banking on an expansion of gambling they contend is not currently allowed by state law. McCord has threatened not to pay Camelot until he’s satisfied that its plans to expand gambling are legal, and the union, Council 13 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, has sued to block the contract.
