(Harrisburg) -- A third state agency is pointing to potential legal problems in Governor Corbett's stalled plan to hire a British company to manage the $3.5 billion Pennsylvania Lottery.
The chief counsel of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board wrote in a letter last month that the proposed contract is too ambiguous to tell what kinds of new gambling it would allow. As a result, the lawyer, Douglas Sherman, says it's impossible to say whether it infringes on state casino gambling laws.
Sherman was responding to a request by lawmakers. His opinion is very similar state Treasurer Rob McCord's.
Attorney General Kathleen Kane rejected the contract in February over concerns that it violates the state constitution and state law.
Corbett says he's revising the contract before he resubmits it to Kane.
