Corbett expected to resubmit Pa. lottery deal

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Gov. Tom Corbett is expected to ask Attorney General Kathleen Kane to reverse her rejection of a contract to hire a British firm to manage the $3.5 billion Pennsylvania Lottery.

Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati said Tuesday that Corbett administration officials told him they are making changes to the contract with London-based Camelot Global Services before they resubmit it.

Kane said last month she wouldn't approve Camelot's 20- to 30-year contract because state law doesn't allow the governor to privatize the management of the lottery nor does it allow the expansion of gambling that it would permit.

A Corbett spokeswoman declined comment, but says certain changes to the contract wouldn't trigger the need to re-bid it. The administration has a March 16 deadline to respond to Kane's decision.
