(Springfield, IL) — Governor Bruce Rauner is severing ties with a private company that has run the Illinois Lottery. Rauner announced on Friday his administration has reached a termination agreement with Northstar Lottery Group, LLC and its parent companies. The agreement is effective January 1st, 2017 or until a new private manager is selected. A legislative report released earlier this month revealed a 125-million-dollar decrease in revenue in 2014, the first time the lottery had lost money since 2009.
