Delaware Gambling Study Panel Reconvenes

DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC) - A state panel that recommended a $10 million financial bailout for Delaware's three casinos earlier this year has reconvened to figure out what, if anything, to do next to help the state's struggling gambling industry.

The gambling study commission, which met Thursday, is charged with studying challenges facing Delaware's gambling industry and recommending ways to help the state remain competitive in a region that is becomingly increasingly saturated with casinos.

Panel members made no decisions Thursday but will meet at least twice more before a January 15 deadline to submit further recommendations.

Options the panel might consider include eliminating the industry's annual $3 million table games fee and reducing the state's share of table game revenue.

Dover Downs officials also are hoping for money to boost marketing and capital expenditures.
