(Harrisburg) -- Governor Corbett is expected to ask state 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 says 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.
