DOVER, Del. (AP) - Representatives of Delaware's casino industry are gathering to discuss the state of Delaware's gambling industry.

The state Video Lottery Advisory Council was to meet Tuesday at Dover Downs.

The agenda includes a review of the competitive situation with Maryland and Pennsylvania, Delaware lottery initiatives, and manufacturers' new products.

State lawmakers recently approved a proposal by Gov. Jack Markell to extend an $8 million financial bailout for Delaware's three casinos to help cover anticipated increases in slot machine vendor costs.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A witness to a boat collision told police a boat operated by a lawmaker was "flying" at "what seemed like full throttle" before a collision that injured seven people.

The 911 recording of a call made by a witness to last week's accident on the Magothy River was made public Tuesday.

Delegate Don Dwyer, R-Anne Arundel, was operating the motorboat that collided with another vessel. Dwyer said Thursday his blood alcohol content was .2, more than twice the legal limit.
