DC Council says lottery contract needs work
Thursday - 6/27/2013, 3:20pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A D.C. Councilmember says he won't allow a contract to provide scratch-off lottery tickets to go forward unless it meets a threshold for participation by local businesses.
Councilmember Jack Evans said Thursday that he would seek to extend the current scratch-off contract while issues with the new proposal are resolved. He says it may need to be rebid.
The city's Office of the Chief Financial Officer wants to award a four-year, $9.7 million contract to New York-based Scientific Games International to provide instant tickets. The new contract, like the old one, does not meet a requirement under city law that at least 35 percent of the contract go to local businesses.
The lottery business in the city has long been troubled. Scratch-off tickets account for 25 percent of lottery sales.
