Lottery Hearing Set For This Week



Legislators will roll the dice in a discussion this week on expanding the Pennsylvania lottery. Adding games to the lottery and privatizing its management will be topics of a Senate hearing next Wednesday. A British company's bid to manage the lottery privately was allowed to expire. Senate Majority Leader spokesman Erik Arneson says Republicans see the potential for adding revenue by adding games like keno to an estimated budget deficit of more than one billion dollars going into next fiscal year.
