ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A new Maryland law that goes into effect this fall will allow casinos to hire a younger workforce.

The Capital reports (https://bit.ly/1FS9Zu5 ) on Oct. 1, a new law will drop the minimum age for casino workers from 21 to 18.

The Maryland Live casino has begun its recruitment efforts. Casino officials will be attending job fairs at dozens of colleges and have implemented social media marketing campaigns.

Officials are looking to fill some 200 jobs at the Hanover operation.

Currently, anyone younger than 21 years old is prohibited from playing a table game in a video lottery facility or being in an area designated for video lottery activities.

The new law will allow video lottery employees who are at least 18 to remain in those areas if they are working.
