State officials are officially seeking a new private manager for the Illinois Lottery after moving to terminate Northstar Lottery Group's contract last year.
Gov. Bruce Rauner announced the release Thursday of a request for proposal on a 10-year $300 million contract.
He says proposed contract changes eliminate past problems.
Illinois awarded Chicago-based Northstar a contract in 2010. The company was criticized about its management style and not meeting revenue goals.
Under September's termination agreement, Northstar continues operations until 2017.
