The House of Delegates has approved a bill that contains the details of implementing slot machine gambling in Maryland, if voters approve legalizing them in a referendum.
The House managed the 71 votes needed to pass the measure, sending it to the Senate.
The bill, which defines how 15,000 machines would be distributed in five locations, complements another measure the House passed Friday night to hold a referendum on whether to legalize slot machines.
House and Senate negotiators are scheduled to either work out some differences between bills or concur with versions already passed on the slots measures, budget cuts and a $1.4 billion tax package Sunday afternoon and evening.
