ISSUE: Anne Arundel County officials are preparing for a big increase in liquor-license requests for restaurants from local vendors and national chains alike now that a new state law has opened the door to more dining options in the county's fastest-growing areas. Since legislation took effect July 1 allowing restaurateurs to hold up to six licenses in Anne Arundel in designated areas, the county liquor board has received 15 inquiries for licenses, up from the average of two or three a month. Interested parties include Outback Steakhouse, Ruby Tuesday, TGI Friday's and Bennigan's.

YOUR VIEW: Does the county need more restaurants? Is there a risk that chain restaurants could overwhelm the county?Tell us what you think at arundel.speakout@baltsun.com by tomorrow. Please keep your responses short, and include your name, address and phone number. A selection will be published Sunday.
