The Video Lottery Terminal Location Commission — more commonly known as the slots commission — has announced that it will meet July 31.
The biggest ticket item on the agenda? The award of the license for a downtown Baltimore casino, for which only CBAC Gaming LLC — a group headed by Caesars Entertainment Corp. — is still eligible.
Slots chairman Donald C. Fry told The Daily Record in June that a working group’s use of state fiscal analysts and PricewaterhouseCoopers slowed the pace of deliberations on the Baltimore casino award.
The same analysts calculating the impact of expanded gambling are those who aid the slots commission, Fry said.
