Busch meets with MGM and National Harbor developer

ANNAPOLIS — House Speaker Michael Busch says he met with an executive from MGM Hospitality and a National Harbor developer, but the speaker says not to read too much into the meeting, because state officials still have a lot to weigh before a casino could be allowed in Prince George’s County.

Busch said in a telephone interview on Thursday that Milton Peterson, of National Harbor, and Michael Evans, MGM’s executive vice president for global development, told him they are poised to have an agreement for a casino, if one is approved at the development. The meeting took place Wednesday in Annapolis.

In a statement, Jon Peterson, senior vice president of the Peterson Cos. at National Harbor, would not elaborate on a possible agreement, because a deal had not yet been reached.
