MGM Representatives To Meet With Maryland Governor

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Officials with Las Vegas casino operator MGM are scheduled to meet with Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley about plans for a potential casino near the nation’s capital.

The governor has a Friday morning meeting scheduled in Annapolis with MGM representatives about the possibility of opening a casino at National Harbor.

A work group O’Malley convened is studying the possibility of allowing table games like blackjack and poker in the state.

The work group of lawmakers and O’Malley aides also is weighing the possibility of allowing a casino in Prince George’s County. That would require lawmakers to pass legislation, and voters would have to approve the proposed gambling expansion on the November ballot.
