Sen. Vincent Hughes, D-Philadelphia, calls for legislative hearings on Gov. Corbett’s scheme to outsource management of PA lottery

State Sen. Vincent Hughes today admonished the Corbett Administration for moving forward with the potential privatization of state lottery management without involvement from the General Assembly or the public.

“There are so many unanswered questions about this plan and how it impacts senior programs,” Hughes (D-Phila./Montgomery) said. “The lottery is a well-run, highly-efficient agency, nationally recognized for its success and has been counted on to fund key senior programs for years. It should not be threatened with privatization.”
