Grrrr: House prioritizes gambling votes over tax relief, other top issues central to Texans well-being – Pratt on Texas 5/11/2023

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Texas House faces another major deadline tonight, and another tomorrow, and yet leadership prioritized votes on gambling and other matters over critical issues – they haven’t even gotten to tax relief reconciliation. They are getting votes for bad bills before those that affect Texans’ well-being! (I guess on the gambling front it shows that you may not can buy all the votes but you can buy getting a vote on the House floor!)

And on the subject of gambling, Abilene’s Rep. Stan Lambert voted FOR both expanding casino gambling and online sports gambling in Texas!
