The Senate voted 35-11 on Tuesday to move the bill forward. It would pave the way for a sixth state casino license in Prince George's County and increase the amount of revenue slots parlor owners are allowed to keep by 8 percent.

The measure now moves to the House of Delegates. The bill must be approved by the House and governor and ratified by a majority of Maryland voters.
