Legislation that will allow fraternal and veterans groups to operate gaming machines is now law. Officials in the Governor’s office tell WGMD that Governor Markell signed House Bill 1 on Wednesday. This measure will allow fraternal and veterans organizations who get a license from the state Lottery Office to operate gaming machines until June 30th. They do have a number of conditions and restrictions to follow. The licenses must be obtained first – and they will be available from the Lottery office in a few days. Right now – the machines are still illegal!
