ABSTRACT
The article reports that Maryland House delegates recently were set to debate a slot machine gambling bill that is drastically different from the one passed by the Senate last week. The House version would allow the installation of 9,500 machines in Anne Arundel, Harford, Frederick, and Allegany counties, but would prohibit slot machine gambling in Prince George's County, Dorchester County, and Baltimore. The House measure calls for less than two-thirds the number of slot machines that would be allowed under the Senate bill, which does not contain similar limits on where the slots can be located. Crafted by the House Ways and Means Committee, the bill would allocate $300 million to school construction and $150 million to local jurisdictions based on lottery ticket sales.
