Some of the highlights of the 28-page report, conducted by Oxford Economics and put out by the American Gaming Association, show gaming has, so far, brought in $1.4 billion to the state's economy, approximately 8,000 jobs have been created and about $543 million in local, state and federal tax revenues have come in. PGRI Note: One leguislator commented that is not necessarily good if the gambling revenues are coming from residents of Maryland as opposed to out-of-state residents bringing new money into the Maryland economy.  This article fails to point out the obvious fact that at least some of the money gambled by Maryland residents would have been taken out of the state to casinos in WV and DE if they had no in-state casino options.
