Maryland citizens will get to vote on whether to bring casino games — such as poker, blackjack and baccarat — to Rosecroft Raceway in Prince George’s County if a bill passed by the Senate on Wednesday makes it through the House of Delegates.

The measure, which the Senate approved 34-13, would put the card games on a referendum in November.

The project would cost the state $51 million in renovations to the Fort Washington harness racing track and $30 million to build a casino, according to a study by the Innovation Group, a leisure and hospitality consulting firm.
