(Harrisburg) -- State Attorney General Kathleen Kane says she's unlikely to approve any proposal to privatize management of the Pennsylvania Lottery unless the Legislature gets to vote on it.

Kane made her comments in an interview with editors and reporters at the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Democrat rejected Republican Governor Tom Corbett's contract with Britain-based Camelot Global Services in February, saying it violates state law and the state constitution. She says she expects a revised proposal from the governor's office any day now.

Kane says she doesn't want to judge the new proposal before she receives it, but that she's unlikely to approve it without the same requirement for legislative approval that other privatization deals require.

A Corbett aide described the revised proposal as a work in progress.
