Developer wants to build major casino near Washington, DC

The developer behind the National Harbor, a hotel, convention and entertainment facility just outside of Washington, D.C., wants to build a $1 billion casino at the site.

Slot machines are allowed at five sites in Maryland. Prince George County, where National Harbor is located, was not included due to opposition from local lawmakers.

Rushern L. Baker III was one of those lawmakers. But now that he serves as executive of the county, he thinks a gaming facility is a good idea.

A new bill has been introduced to allow slots in the county, pending approval by state had county voters.
