A contract to hand over the operations of the Pennsylvania Lottery to a private British firm is now in the hands of the state attorney general, starting a 30-day clock. That’s how long Attorney General Kathleen Kane has to review the at least 20-year deal signed by the Corbett administration.
The governor said he doesn’t expect the recently inaugurated Democratic attorney general to hold up the process.
“When I was attorney general, on contracts that if we saw a potential problem with the contract, we worked with them to get the contract fixed,” said Corbett at an announcement in Hershey, Dauphin County. “I believe we would be able to work things out because we feel strongly that the contract is a legal contract and that we have the authority.”
