Pro-slots group new push for casino
Proponents of a slots casino at Arundel Mills mall have launched a new effort to move construction of the facility forward, according to reporter John Wagner.
The group, backed by Baltimore-based developer Cordish Cos., has launched a ballot issue committee to bolster support for the 4,750-machine casino. As part of their efforts, the group has debuted a new Web site that features a national-debt-style ticker purporting to show revenue lost by delays in building the casino.
An opposing group, No Slots at the Mall, already has television ads in heavy rotation. It is planning to open its campaign headquarters in Hanover on Saturday.
