ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- The Anne Arundel County Council has voted to delay debate on whether to allow a casino at Arundel Mills mall.
The council's vote Monday puts off debate until May 18. The bill expires in June and it's the second time the council has delayed discussion on the zoning bill.
Baltimore-based developer Cordish Cos. has proposed a 200,000-square-foot entertainment complex at Arundel Mills to house restaurants, a venue for live entertainment and a casino with 4,750 slot machines.
Councilman Daryl Jones, whose district includes the mall in Hanover, says there are more issues to address before the council takes action.
Any changes made to the bill must be completed during the May 18 meeting and Jones says it's unclear if all the work can be completed that night.
