Panel of senators supports gambling expansion in Maryland March 26, 2012 9:50 AM by Staff & Wire Reports

A panel of state Senators is supporting legislation to expand gambling in Maryland.

The Budget and Taxation Committee voted 10-2 Friday afternoon to move the bill to the full Senate.

The proposal would create a sixth Maryland license for a slot machine parlor to be built in Prince George’s County and legalize table games at that location and the state’s five other slots sites.

If the legislature passes the bill it will have to be ratified by a majority of Maryland voters.
