According to WBAL News, MGM Resorts International have made an agreement on to build a casino destination at the National Harbor waterfront complex near Annapolis. The proposed casino would house about 4,000 slot machines, 200 table games with shopping, restaurants and a hotel. Governor Martin O'Malley and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller have met with MGM officials. One obstacle is the state's high tax rate of 67 percent. MGM says it would have to be lowered to 52 percent.
