ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The push to round up votes to hold a special session for gambling expansion is shifting to Baltimore.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, House Speaker Michael Busch and Gov. Martin O'Malley are scheduled to meet with the city's House delegation in Baltimore on Wednesday.
Rawlings-Blake has expressed support for expanding gambling to allow table games at a planned Baltimore casino.
O'Malley has repeatedly said he wants to call a special session soon to put to rest lingering issues related to gambling in Maryland. The governor says he'll call a special session, once a consensus is reached.
O'Malley has been expressing confidence in recent days that a consensus will be forged to pass legislation this summer.
A proposal for a casino in Prince George's County has complicated the negotiations so far.
