ABSTRACT
The article reports that Maryland Senate voted to legalize slot machines in Maryland. It was the third time in three years the Senate approved a slots measure, this time by a 26-to-21 vote. House delegates, who have rejected slots proposals the last two years, are likely to vote on their own version of a slots bill this week. This year's contentious slots debate has centered on the machines' placement at locations around the state. Prince George's County senators voiced the loudest opposition, saying they would vote against any legislation without an exception barring slots in their county. A House version of the bill would also require potential venue owners to bid for licenses but would allow the exclusion of areas such as Prince George's County and Baltimore.
