ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland lawmaker says he will be proposing a change to a gambling measure to create a House and Senate oversight panel.

Delegate Eric Luedtke indicated his plan to propose amending the bill to expand gambling during a meeting Saturday with about a dozen members of the House of Delegates. Luedtke, a Montgomery County Democrat, says he’ll submit the proposal Monday.

The measure to allow table games and allow a casino in Prince George’s County will reshape the State Lottery Agency as a new State Lottery and Gaming Control Agency. Members would be appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the Senate.

Delegate Frank Turner, a Howard County Democrat, says that’s a concern because it leaves the House out of the process of reconfiguring the new agency.
