It’s been difficult to chat with anyone at the annual Maryland Association of Counties summer conference without that conversation inevitably shifting to the General Assembly’s recently-adjourned special session on gambling expansion.
The narrative may not change anytime soon, since the measure still must go to voters in November, and an advertising war shows no signs of relenting.
Here’s some other headlines from Ocean City:
- Barry Rascovar, in The Gazette, writes that the gambling issue has not yet played itself out.
- The Baltimore Sun reports on the watered-down campaign contribution prohibition in the gambling bill.
- MarylandReporter.com reports that Maryland’s highest court is expected to rule on congressional redistricting Friday.
