Maryland Senate Passes Gambling, Reverses Pit Bull Laws

August 12th, 2012 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland State Senate has voted (28-14) to approve a bill to expand gambling in Maryland. According to WBAL News, a vote (41-1) also approved a bill reversing the Maryland Court of Appeals decision that defines pit bulls as  "inherently dangerous." Owners are now automatically responsible for any injuries the dogs may cause. Both votes were passed on the second day of a special legislative session called by Governor Martin O'Malley earlier this summer. The expanded gambling bill also adds a sixth casino in the state of Maryland, and legalizes table games at casinos statewide.
