Scene 1, Baltimore

The Maryland Lottery Commission yesterday voted to grant a conditional slots license to Cordish Co.; the approval is contingent that Cordish receive his zoning request to locate the slots parlor next to Arundel Mills.

Cut to Scene 2, Annapolis

Ostensibly due to the absence of various council members, the Anne Arundel County Council again tabled the zoning request…this time promising a “just in time for Christmas” decision on December 21.  Horsemen and advocates for locating slots at Laurel Park will continue to fight the Arundel Mills location.
