Why not have gambling? Texans leave millons of dollars in Nevada and Louisiana where it is legal. They might as well spend it here where the money that would be spent out of state can generate jobs, tax income, etc. for our great state. Just because gambling is illegal does not stop Texans from doing so. If they are going to do it, our state should be able to profit from it.
