Maryland lawmakers neared a final vote Monday on legislation to implement sports betting in the state on the last day of the state’s legislative session. With top-priority legislation on pandemic relief and police reform already passed, lawmakers were working on wrapping up the 90-day session, which was scheduled to adjourn at midnight. Lawmakers announced an agreement early in the day on how many licenses would be allowed for sports betting, which voters approved with 67% support in November. Sports wagering could begin as soon as the fall.
