    And how much money is going to “the Maryland Education Trust Fund, local impact grants, local jurisdictions, the state’s horse racing industry and the Maryland General Fund?”

      I just know they’ll be pumping 10’s of Millions into PG County and Baltimore city schools, even though 90% of the students there can’t pass simple math exams! It never fails!

    You would think that maybe, just maybe, a big chunk of that could be used as a down-payment on a new Thomas Johnson bridge! Nah, that ain’t gonna’ happen; at least not until the old one is deemed too dangerous to leave open or, collapses into the Patuxent River!
