More gaming proposals made
ANNAPOLIS - The Washington County delegation took action on several other proposals for the county's tip jar gaming law Thursday, including:
- Approved a measure that would permit members of the county Gaming Commission to serve two two-year terms. Supporters of the amendment said the current limit of one two-year term causes too much turnover on the panel, which distributes gaming funds to fire and rescue companies, charities and other nonprofit organizations.
- Approved an amendment that would allow members of the Gaming Commission to serve as officers and directors of nonprofit groups, but only if those groups do not apply for gaming funds. The present restriction that prohibits nonprofit officers from serving on the commission keeps many otherwise-qualified people off the panel, supporters of the proposal said.
