Gambling special session: Good reason to vote out incumbents

The casino in Perryville wants to give back 400 to 500 of its slot machines due to the impact of the Maryland Live casino ("Casino seeking to stem decline," Aug. 7) while the legislature considers a 6th location when the 4th and 5th locations are still in the approval process. Maryland owns the machines Perryville wants to give back. What's the cost to that investment, the state employees that will pick them up, the cost of storing them (space, utilities, security personnel), the cost to refurbish, assuming someone else wants used machines, etc. My advice: Vote for a name you don't recognize in November, 2014.
