PA Lottery talks said to be slowed by concerns

(Harrisburg) -- A top member of Governor Corbett's administration says a British firm's concerns about challenges to its bid to take over the Pennsylvania Lottery's management are hampering efforts to reach an agreement. 

Negotiations are to continue Friday.

Secretary of Revenue Daniel Meuser tells The Associated Press that Camelot Global Services wants assurances it won't be penalized if state employees' opposition prevents it from achieving its profit projections.

Administration officials remain supportive of Camelot's bid.

Meuser says the Corbett administration is pursuing Camelot because it hopes to ensure the lottery produces the rising profits necessary to satisfy growing demand for state services for the elderly.

The union representing state lottery employees is suing to block an agreement with Camelot and has filed a grievance and an unfair labor practice charge.
