ANNAPOLIS, Md. | Local officials in Maryland have decided to delay a vote on the state’s largest slot machine proposal.

The Anne Arundel County Council, which only had four of its seven members present, voted late Friday night to put the vote off until Dec. 21.

The decision was made after residents testified for hours both for and against allowing a facility with 4,750 slot machines near a popular shopping mall.

County officials also decided to delay their vote just hours after a state commission approved the site near Arundel Mills Mall.

The proposal by the Cordish Co. has been bottled up in the county council, where residents have come to vocally express both support and opposition to the idea.
