Maryland voters approve gambling expansion
On Tuesday, voters in Maryland approved an expansion of gambling in the state that will soon include table games and a casino near the nation’s capital.
According to the Associated Press, table games like craps and poker could begin early next year at Maryland’s three existing casinos and at two expected to be built later. In addition, because the question also passed in Prince George’s County, a casino can also be built near the nation’s capital.
Gov. Martin O’Malley had called a special session in August to consider the expansion. Lawmakers passed legislation that still needed voter approval.
