Maryland Senate committee advances plan for legal sports gambling

April 8, 2021

The Maryland Senate is advancing a broad plan to allow legalized gambling on sports at a variety of in-person locations and on mobile apps. The Senate’s Budget and Taxation Committee voted unanimously Wednesday to advance the plan to the Senate for discussion beginning Thursday. The legislation the Senate is considering would create different types of licenses for in-person betting and online betting, but effectively would allow an unlimited number of licenses. Baltimore’s Pimlico Race Course and the stadiums for the Orioles, Ravens and the Washington Football Team could offer daily betting under the Senate plan.
