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.
