GOV. CORBETT/CAMELOT GLOBAL AGREE TO BID EXTENSION

2/17/2013

Governor Tom Corbett’s administration has persuaded a company wanting to take over the management of the Pennsylvania Lottery to extend their bid. 

According to reports, Camelot Global Services has agreed to extend their bid until next Friday.  The two sides had been working to extend the bid after the original bid period ran out on Saturday.  The change was necessary after Attorney General Kathleen Kane rejected the contract, saying that the contract usurped the authority of the legislature to regulate and manage the lottery.  The contract had also come under fire from the union representing lottery employees. 

Camelot had promised $34 billion in profits over 20 years, but the Lottery Employees union and Democrats are saying the contract with Camelot gives the company opportunities that are currently not allowed under state law.  The Lottery employees say that if they got those same opportunities, they could make as much as Camelot proposed.
