(Harrisburg) -- Another extension of a deadline is possible for Gov. Tom Corbett to consider whether to hire the British national lottery operator to manage the $3.5 billion Pennsylvania Lottery.
Today deadline comes after a 10-day extension already agreed to by Camelot Global Services.
Camelot is the sole bidder for the contract. It's committing to $34 billion in lottery profits over 20 years, with extensions of up to 10 years possible if it meets certain performance benchmarks.
Unionized state lottery employees have offered a counterproposal to keep the management in-house.
Meanwhile, state Treasurer Rob McCord is threatening to withhold payments to Camelot unless he's satisfied that its plans to expand lottery gambling are authorized by state law and the Senate Finance Committee scheduled a Monday hearing on the matter.
