HARRISBURG — Democratic lawmakers and Republican Gov. Tom Corbett clashed on Wednesday over the governor‘s plan to privatize management of the state lottery.
Corbett has yet to sign the contract he awarded last week to Britain-based Camelot Global Services, but Department of Revenue officials hinted Corbett would do so before the end of the week. The contract then would go to Democratic Attorney General Kathleen Kane, who has 30 days to review it for “form and legality.” Corbett will speak about the lottery plan Thursday in Hershey.
House Democrats at a news conference on Wednesday blasted Corbett‘s lottery plan, which they claim was crafted secretly and is a bad deal for Pennsylvania senior citizens, who benefit from lottery programs.
