Benninghoff Law Will Keep Lottery Competitive
11/18/2014
HARRISBURG – State Rep. Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) went to Harrisburg Monday to see the governor ceremonially sign the local legislator’s bill into law, which will help the Pennsylvania Lottery offer competitive products while ensuring long-term funding is available for programs for older Pennsylvanians.

“We want the Pennsylvania Lottery to be able to provide a wide range of products that keeps it competitive,” Benninghoff said. “The state lottery helps to deliver a number of beneficial services and programs that help older Pennsylvanians.”

Act 201 of 2014, previously Benninghoff’s House Bill 2110, amends the State Lottery Law to change the rate of return on profits to no less than 25 percent.

The law also requires the Pennsylvania Lottery to deliver an annual report to both the House and Senate, a provision that would have expired in 2015 without the new law.

“This law will provide continued transparency and accountability at the Pennsylvania Lottery while the organization fulfills its mission to support our senior citizens,” Benninghoff said.

Act 201 was officially signed into law on Oct. 31. It took effect immediately.
