According to a report, Delaware House Majority Leader Pete Schwartzkopf has announced that he plans on re-filing an amended version of a bill which could lead to a racino for Sussex County.

An article on explains that there are three propositions for gambling venues in Sussex County: Del Pointe Resort and Racino in Millsboro, the old Georgetown harness track off Route 9 and Delmar International Speedway off Route 13 in Delmar. Each venue would have to submit a proposal and compete for approval. The decision would be based on size of the project and its impact on the local economy.

Schwartzkopf was cited as saying that he is working with an attorney to perfect the language of the bill, which was amended more than 10 times in the last session.

The legislative session is scheduled to begin Tuesday, January 11.
