Sports betting at Maryland casinos could return for 2018 agenda in General Assembly – Baltimore Sun

The issue of casino gambling, largely absent from the General Assembly’s agenda for the past five years, could return to Annapolis in 2018.

Joe Weinberg, head of the company that operates Maryland Live Casino & Hotel in Anne Arundel County, said Tuesday that he is “all in” for an effort to legalize sports betting at Maryland’s six casinos.

Weinberg, chief executive of Cordish Global Gaming, urged members of the Joint Committee on Gaming Oversight to take up the issue in 2018 so that a constitutional amendment may be put on next year’s general election ballot.

Maryland’s gambling laws permitting casinos take the form of constitutional amendments, which are put to voters, who ultimately decide.
