The Maryland House of Delegates won’t convene for a special session on expanded gambling until next Friday, one day after the session is set to begin.

The bill that Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) will introduce is expected to allow a new casino in Prince George’s County and Las Vegas-style style table games at the state’s existing slots locations.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller (D-Calvert) has indicated his chamber will convene Thursday, with the hope of taking action on the gambling bill by Friday.

Busch’s memo Friday also confirmed that lawmakers will consider a bill related to the state’s recent high-court ruling on the liability associated with pit bulls.
