HARRISBURG - The company seeking a contract with Gov. Corbett to run the Pennsylvania Lottery may not get paid unless its plans to expand gambling are clearly legal, state Treasurer Rob McCord said Wednesday.
McCord's position could be a blow to Corbett's plans to possibly hire Britain-based Camelot Global Services, the only bidder for a 20-year contract to manage one of the nation's biggest lotteries. It could also force Corbett to seek specific approval from the legislature to allow the Pennsylvania Lottery to operate keno or online lottery games.
McCord said Camelot's plans to increase lottery revenue by expanding gambling were vague and its proposed agreement appears to exceed state laws. - AP
