BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland officials are scheduled to decide who will get a license to open a large casino near the nation's capital.

A state commission is set to hear follow up presentations from consultants and applicants on Friday in Baltimore before announcing a decision.

MGM Resorts International has proposed building a $925 million resort near the Potomac River at National Harbor with a hotel, casino and seven restaurants.

Prince George's Racing Ventures, LLC, a subsidiary of Penn National and Maryland Casino LLC, a subsidiary of Greenwood Racing, also have proposed building a casino in Prince George's County, not far from Washington.

A casino could not open in the county until 2016. It will be the sixth casino in the state. Four casinos already have opened. Another is being built in Baltimore.
