New gaming expansion law to be introduced next month
December 31, 2010
Next month the Texas Gaming Association will be introducing a new gaming
expansion bill. This is being done in effort to compensate for state budget
deficit. The deficit is estimated to be around $20 million. Law makers see the
new bill as a way to increase revenues for the state.
When the bill is presented, it will ask for a constitutional amendment. This
amendment will allow for casino resorts to be built throughout the state.
In previous years, similar bills have been presented to state voters. Each time
it was rejected. Law makers are hopeful for approval. If passed, it will prevent
some budget cuts.
