Gov. Tom Corbett is optimistic that legislative support for privatizing the state lottery is growing.
For the first time in more than a year, the Corbett administration has no obligation to a British firm that bid on a deal to manage the Pennsylvania Lottery.
The bid from Camelot Global Services expired at the end of 2013.
But Corbett says state lawmakers are still in talks over legislation to allow lottery privatization.
"Nothing’s public," he said. "There’s more discussion and I think there’s more look at getting more funds into Pennsylvania.
