Regarding your recent report on a the bill to put slot machines at
Putting slot machines in the airport will only jeopardize airport security, increase the cost of airport security and have a bad influence on minors by exposing them to the gambling environment.
It will also distract the passengers and make them miss their flights and compete with the newly opened Maryland Live Casino just miles away from BWI.
Do we want to turn BWI into a mega-gambling airport like the one in Las Vegas? Did we lose our vision to promote Maryland into a science- and technology-oriented state?
I urge legislators to think before proposing and passing such a bill.
