P.G. County Executive: Slots could help fund new projects

ANNAPOLIS — Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker III says he is open to adding a slot-machine gambling in the county as a way to help generate funding for new projects.

Baker told The Washington Post on Monday in Annapolis that he plans to ask state lawmakers for a large amount of funding, and said he expects slots will be part of discussions as a way to pay for the county’s needs.

Baker says funding for a new regional medical center for the county will be among the requests he makes when the legislative session starts next month.

Penn National Gaming Inc. has been pushing a plan for slots at the Rosecroft Raceway horse racing track in Prince George’s County, but there has been opposition.

  1. Dumb, it’s not working in Anne Arundel county. Cut wasteful spending and you would not have to constantly find ways to rip off more county residents with bogus immoral ideas.
