According to WBAL News, the Maryland Senate approved a bill on Friday that would allow a sixth casino in the state of Maryland, now sending the legislation to the Maryland House of Delegates. The bill reduces the state's tax rate on revenues from 67 to 60 percent and allows table games inside all of the state's casinos. Now moves to the House of Delegates, where if passed would still have to be approved by voters in November. Locally, the wait is still on for a casino at Rocky Gap Resort, as the slots license has been delayed since December 2011.
