Slots Gambling Referendum Gaining Critical Support in Maryland

Maryland always had Pimlico Race Course. The legendary race track has drawn people from all over the world. Recently, however, it has gotten more difficult to draw patrons with the addition of live slots in surrounding states.

Governor Martin O'Malley saw the need to follow in those states' footsteps and add slots to the draw in Maryland. The plan is now up in a referendum that would bring over 9,000 slots to the state.

Recently, the referendum gained the support of the Maryland Teachers Union, who voted in favor of backing the referendum. That was a much needed group to join the growing list of supporters for the slot legalization.

Now, county leaders are also lining up behind the referendum. The Maryland Association of Counties has come out and said, they too, will support the referendum.

"Local governments have a direct interest in the passage of the slots referendum this year," said Jim Smith, a Baltimore County Executive.

Money will not be the only thing generated if the referendum is passed. It is expected that over 9,000 new jobs will be created in the horse racing industry. That means the economy in the state will naturally take a turn for the better.
