ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Democratic leaders in the Maryland House of Delegates are scheduled to discuss a push to expand gambling in Maryland.
The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in Annapolis.
House Speaker Michael Busch met for about two hours on Tuesday with David Cordish, the owner of Maryland's largest casino, who does not want a casino to be allowed in Prince George's County, because he believes it will seriously hurt his business.
Gov. Martin O'Malley wants to hold a special session this summer to tackle the issues of allowing table games and a new casino site. O'Malley wants a consensus to be reached before calling the session.
The sixth casino has been a tough sell in the House, where delegates have expressed concern about lowering the state's 67 percent tax rate.
