A spokeswoman for Gov. Martin O'Malley says a draft of legislation to expand gambling in Maryland will not be available this week. Raquel Guillory says it is unclear when the proposal will be available for lawmakers to review, but that the O'Malley administration is aiming to make the draft available sometime next week.

The governor told reporters after meeting with Baltimore city lawmakers he hoped to have a draft available on Friday. O'Malley wants to hold a special session of the General Assembly this summer to allow table games as well as a casino in Prince George's county.   

The proposal would require voter approval in November, which means lawmakers have until August 20 to pass legislation.
