Over the years, Pennsylvania hasn’t been an exemplar for job creation and economic growth. A new mindset is in order, according to a study that shows that the pro-growth policies of the Corbett Administration have Pennsylvania rising quickly up the ranks.

The only things standing in the way of the private management of the Pennsylvania Lottery are reviews by the Attorney General, Treasurer, and Auditor General. They each have 30 days to review Governor Tom Corbett’s decision to hand the administration of the Lottery over to Camelot Global Services. Their review is limited to the scope of their offices.
“The Attorney General reviews it for its legality, the Treasurer on its financials,” said Jay Pagni, a spokesman for the Department of General Services. “None can review on policy.”
