HARRISBURG, Pa. —
A British company gave the Corbett administration an extension on a bid set to expire on Saturday to manage the Pennsylvania Lottery, a Pennsylvania Department of Revenue official said Saturday.
The bid from Camelot Global Services PA, part of the company that runs the United Kingdom's National Lottery, was set to expire 5 p.m. Saturday.
It's been extended through Friday.
State Attorney General Kathleen Kane on Thursday rejected Gov. Tom Corbett's 20-year, $34 billion contract with the company to privatize lottery management.
Kane said Corbett's office usurped the power of the state Legislature in approving the deal.
The extension gives the governor and Camelot additional time “to determine what next steps will be appropriate,” Elizabeth Brassell, a revenue department spokeswoman, said on Saturday.
Corbett said on Friday that his administration was reviewing its options, only one of which he named: an appeal to Commonwealth Court.
