AFSME Council 13 — which made its own bid for the Pennsylvania Lottery — said Gov. Tom Corbett should drop his bid to privatize the lottery with Camelot Global Services PA.
“At this point, the governor is just wasting valuable time. We agree with the governor and with lawmakers who want to grow the lottery and generate more revenue for our seniors. We agree that with the legal addition of more games, we can do more to fund life-saving programs such as PACE-NET,” AFSCME Council 13 Executive Director Dave Fillman said in a prepared statement.
