Maryland State Sen. Nancy King, who chairs the state’s Senate's budget committee, confirmed Thursday that sports betting will not be available from sites based within its borders this year. Lawmakers simply do not have an appetite it at this time.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller says he agrees sports betting will have to wait until the 2020 ballot.

Maryland's constitution requires an expansion of commercial gambling to be approved by voters in a statewide ballot question. Lawmakers considered a potential loophole around the statewide vote, but they haven't moved forward with it.

Legislation to put sports betting on the ballot last year stalled over disagreements about whether to allow it at casinos or racetracks, or both.
