Gov. Tom Corbett is ending his pursuit of the operator of the British national lottery to run the Pennsylvania Lottery in a privatization deal.
Despite blistering criticism from state Democrats, Governor Corbett has decided to once again extend the bid by a British-based firm to manage the Pennsylvania Lottery.
Governor Tom Corbett plans to ask Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s office to reverse its rejection of a contract with a British firm to manage the $3.5 billion Pennsylvania Lottery, a top lawmaker said Tuesday.
This is the second time that a British company has extended its bid to operate the Pennsyvlania Lottery since Pa. attorney general Kathleen Kane determined that the contract would violate the Pennsylvania constitution.
Corbett traveled to Hershey, Pa. to pitch a group of senior citizens about the benefits a private lottery manager would bring.
The Corbett administration announced Friday that it intends to award a contract to Camelot Global Services — a Canadian-owned, British-based company — to run the state lotteries.
Members of a state Senate committee will have their chance to question Corbett administration officials about their plan to privatize the management of the Pennsylvania Lottery.
Democrats in the state legislature are fuming at word that the Corbett administration now plans to award a contract to a British firm to take over management of the Pennsylvania Lottery.
Minority Democrats in the Pennsylvania legislature say Governor Tom Corbett needs to be more open about his effort to privatize the management of the state Lottery.
