ANNAPOLIS -- Members of Washington County's General Assembly delegation on Wednesday debated a bill to tighten the county's tip-jar regulations. The bill would add a state layer to a county prohibition against electronic tip jars that dispense randomly generated numbers. The machines aren't used in Washington County, which only allows pre-printed tickets, but are in Allegany County, where they have been likened to slot machines. The bill would set other benchmarks for Washington County's tip-jar gaming, further distinguishing it from forms played elsewhere.
