House Republicans Express Opposition to Second Special Session

As reported by the Washington Post, House Republicans announced their opposition to a special session to expand gambling, “saying the issue needs to be considered in a more deliberative and thoughtful fashion.”

“It is our view that special sessions should only be called in times of true, rather than contrived, crisis,” said a letter released Thursday by House Minority Leader Anthony J. O’Donnell (R-Calvert) and House Minority Whip Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio. “No matter where one stands on the issue, the question of whether or not to expand gaming in Maryland deserved a full and thoughtful vetting through the regular legislative process.”
