Experts to Testify In Annapolis About Gambling Expansion

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A work group of lawmakers and aides to Gov. Martin O'Malley that is studying a potential expansion of gambling in Maryland is scheduled to hear from analysts who have been looking at the proposals.

The meeting is set for Tuesday in Annapolis.

Lawmakers will hear from analysts from PricewaterhouseCoopers. They'll talk about their findings on a potential gambling expansion.

O'Malley has said he will call a special session next month to take up the expansion, if lawmakers can reach a consensus on how to do that.

Lawmakers are weighing whether to allow table games like blackjack and baccarat. They also are pondering whether to allow a casino in Prince George's County.

Any gambling expansion would require voter approval in November.
