(Harrisburg) -- Governor Corbett will revise the contract with a British company to manage the $3.5 billion Pennsylvania Lottery after Attorney General Kathleen Kane rejected the initial plan. 

Corbett's office, in a statement released today, says  by revising the vendor contract with Camelot Global Services, it will provide clarificant to Kane and her office and was ``the next step'' in the governor's oft-stated intent to ``securing predictable Lottery funding for senior programs'' in the state.

The Department of Revenue will submit a revised contract to Kane's office in the ``upcoming months.''

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 the contract would permit.

Camelot’s bid has been extended through June 30.
