Regretfully, the super work group initiated by Gov. Martin O’Malley could not come to a consensus for expansion of gambling in Maryland, leading to collapse of putting up a casino in Prince George’s County. As such, the special legislative session for the week of July 9 would not be there. Though many members of the work group favored for table games, e.g. roulette and blackjack at the existing five slots sites, but three participants opined against addition of a sixth casino.
While speaking to the reporters, O’Malley said that he was confused with the ongoing events and hoped to hear back from the speaker of the house.
County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) opined that a first rate casino for Prince George’s is a matter of priority. As stated by the developers of National Harbor, MGM Resorts International would go ahead with the casino, provided a favorable tax rate is facilitated. Though discouraged but yet optimistic, Baker expected the legislative leaders to finalize an agreement in time for a summer special session.
The chairwoman of the Ways and Means Committee - Hixson, expressed that the existing five casinos must be allowed by the law makers to get up and run well before the sixth casino comes into being.
