Slots in Maryland sign now

It has been debated for quite a long time now whether or not the people of Maryland want slot machines. This is a petition to the Maryland State Government, backing Governor Ehrlich's slot plan which would authorize gambling devices at six locations, including three racetracks. Pimlico, Laurel Park racetracks, Rosecroft Raceway in Prince George's County, and at Camden Yards. With 3 states bordering Maryland already having slots, the state is at an economic disadvantage, losing not only Maryland gamblers, but horseracing as well.

From the Baltimore Sun:
"Two days after Pennsylvania legalized slot machines on July 5, Tom Bowman received a call from an out-of-state client who had kept horses for years at Bowman's farm in Maryland. The man told Bowman to send his five horses to a farm in Pennsylvania.

"He just said, 'I'm sorry, but it doesn't make any sense to have horses in Maryland anymore,' " said Bowman, past president of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association. "And you have to agree with him.""

The future of horseracing, and economic growth in Maryland are important issues, both of which would benefit from slots.
