Gov. Tom Corbett plans to rework Pennsylvania's contract with Britain's Camelot Global Services for privatizing the state lottery, after Attorney General Kathleen Kane struck the deal down last month as unconstitutional.
Corbett expects the Department of Revenue to submit a revised contract in the upcoming months to Kane's office, he said late Friday. The contract will be available online when it is finalized, his office said. Meanwhile, Camelot, which operates Britain's national lottery, has extended its bid until June 30.
The governor in January had awarded Camelot a 20-year contract, with the company saying it could bring the lottery system $35 billion over that time. But Kane voided the deal, calling it unconstitutional because adding games such as Keno without the approval of the state legislature contradicted state lottery laws.
Corbett is a Republican, Kane a Democrat.
Pennsylvania began its lottery in 1971. It is the only state that earmarks all such funds to programs for the elderly.
