Politics Hour Extra

Maryland Senate President Mike Miller announced the formation of an 11-person commission that will look at bringing gambling to National Harbor in Prince George's County. "It's fabulous. It's almost like Paris to people who visit it," Miller said about the harbor. He said the commission will also consider adding table games to the state's five casinos. Maryland residents will get to vote on the changes in a November referendum.
