Veterans organizations in Maryland can apply next week for a license to have up to five instant lottery pull tab machines at their facilities to help raise money for veterans, but it is expected to take months before the machines will be playable because regulations still need to be adopted.
Joe Peters, a spokesman for the attorney general's office, said the review for form and legality - a process his office undertakes for about 5,000 state contracts each year - has been extended beyond the customary 30 days.
"We have asked the Game Commission for additional information and we are awaiting responses for those questions and then can make our determination," Peters said.
