Corbett Extends PA Lottery Bid Another 2 Months



Governor Tom Corbett's effort to hire a private manager for the $3.7-billion Pennsylvania Lottery will continue past the latest deadline of Friday.
 
A spokeswoman for the administration said Wednesday the British national lottery operator, Camelot Global Services, had agreed to extend the life of the company's bid until October 29th.
 
Corbett began searching for a private manager in early 2012, but state Attorney General Kathleen Kane rejected a proposed contract with his eventual choice, Camelot. Kane says state law doesn't allow the governor to privatize lottery management or sanction the expansion of gambling the contract would permit.
 
Corbett's staff has been working for months to rewrite the agreement with Camelot to overcome Kane's objections. It still faces a legal challenge from a state employees' union.
