Senate Democrats released a letter that was sent to Corbett today in the wake of Thursday’s announcement by the Pennsylvania Lottery regarding record sales and revenue for the 2012-13 fiscal year.

The Lottery announced that it finished the fiscal year with $3.69 billion in sales and more than $1 billion in net revenues – above the previous year and prior all-time sales record of $3.48 billion.

Corbett has been pursuing a plan to privatize the management of the Lottery.

Here is a full copy of the letter.
