Attorney general rejects Corbett’s lottery plan

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane said Thursday that she has rejected a contract sought by Gov. Tom Corbett that would let a British firm manage the $3.5 billion Pennsylvania Lottery, saying it it is contrary to the state constitution.

Her decision came after Corbett undertook a nine-month process to hire a private company to replace state employees atop one of the nation's largest lotteries.

Corbett can challenge Kane's decision in court.
