ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Martin O’Malley is planning to meet with local officials next week to talk about the potential for holding a special session to expand gambling in Maryland.

Raquel Guillory, an O’Malley spokeswoman, confirmed Friday the governor is scheduled to meet with Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker, Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on Monday.

O’Malley is scheduled to meet with House Speaker Michael Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller on Tuesday.

Lawmakers have had difficulty reaching an agreement on how to expand gambling in the state to include table games like blackjack and allow a casino in Prince George’s County.

They are facing an Aug. 20 deadline to pass legislation to get a proposal on the ballot for voters to consider in November.
