ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Republicans in the House of Delegates are opposing a special session to take up proposed gambling expansion in Maryland.
Delegate Anthony O'Donnell, the minority leader, and Delegate Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio, the minority whip, sent a letter to the Legislature's presiding officers and Gov. Martin O'Malley on Thursday.
They say special sessions should only be called in times of true crisis. They also write that any expansion of gambling should be taken up in a regular 90-day session to give lawmakers more time to consider the matter.
Earlier this week, O'Malley indicated a special session could be held in the week of July 9, if a work group on gambling reaches a consensus.
Debate is expected to include discussion about allowing table games and allowing a casino in Prince George's County.
