County Approves Slots

Council Approves Both Bills, Allows Leopold To Decideslot_machine

If nothing else, Anne Arundel County Council in ingenious. After stalling for more than a year, the Council has finally cleared the way for a slot parlor to be built near the Arundel Mills Mall. They also paved the way for one to be built near the Laurel Racetrack.

This effectively leaves the decision as to the exact location of the slot parlor to be determined by County Executive John R. Leopold.

With an election coming up in 2010, it seemed no one on the council was willing to take a potentially unpopular stand. So, they did what they do best and deflected the decision on to someone else. It is likely that Leopold will select the Arundel Mills location.

But, this is a giant step in the right direction and it is a decision that should have been made months ago.
