The Tax Debate Behind Gambling In Maryland

The Tax Debate Behind Gambling In Maryland

Maryland lawmakers are looking at ways to expand gambling in the Old Line State and offer relief to offset losses at gambling facilities already up and running.

The Maryland General Assembly is working in Annapolis this week on a plan to expand gambling in the Old Line State, paving the way for a potential high-end casino in Prince George's County.

We explore the incentives on the table and how they're likely to affect the state's broader debate about expanding gambling.
