The State has only allowed the installation of one casino on Native American land in Eagle Pass.
US.- Texas’ Representative Dustin Burrows commented to the local press that the State’s legislators are not debating a new framework for the gaming industry soon. Casino sector is not allowed in Texas, although the government has approved gaming operations at the Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino on Native American land in Eagle Pass.
“I haven’t heard from Austin anyone who thinks it’s going to go anywhere this session,” admitted the official to Texas’ media. Several attempts to legalise the casino industry have been carried out in the State’s Senate, but the debates have been put on hold.
Members of the Republican Party of Lubbock County said that there is a possibility that gambling companies could lobby for the expected regulation. However, Texas’ legislators have not shown signals of interest in accomplishing the expectations yet.
Rep. Burrows also expressed his opposition against casino legalisation, as he believes it would not benefit the local economy situation. “The companies that came in would be from out of state,” Burrows explained. “They would take all the money from the local economy back to their home state.”
