The traditionally conservative state of Texas is debating over gaming issues. States where gaming has been introduced have seen an increase of tax revenues. Amounting in the millions of dollars. Texas lawmakers have started looking at the possibility of allowing for state casinos.

Lawmakers have been discussing the possibility. If gaming was allowed the state of Texas would be able to collect tax revenues. As well as create jobs. The increase of job creation and the increase of money to the state was something that many thought would help the gaming law approval.

However, according to State Rep, Larry Taylor, the votes are not there. It is believed that more discussion will need to take place. More than likely legalizing casinos will not happen this session. Gaming addiction, and elevated crime levels are the main reasons why some lawmakers want to keep gaming legal.

Lobbyist are pushing for both sides of gaming legislation. Each group with a different idea of how to deal with gambling legislation.
