The Pennsylvania Lottery may have new management, according to Gov. Tom Corbett's proposed contract.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane's office has more time to consider a contract that Gov. Tom Corbett's administration signed with British firm Camelot Global Services to take over management the $3.5 billion Pennsylvania Lottery.
 
Kane's office said the time extension was triggered Thursday after Corbett's administration responded to "clarifying questions" from her office.
 
Kane now has another 30 days to review the contract. It was originally submitted to her office in mid-January.

Kane's spokeswoman Ellen Mellody declined to release the correspondence, saying the attorney general's office doesn't consider it a public record.

Camelot's obligated to generate at least $34 billion in lottery profits over 20 years. The union that represents state lottery employees is suing to block the agreement.

The attorney general's office reviews state contracts for form and legality.
