Are You Willing to Bet on Casinos?

Preston Hollow resident Jack Pratt has been fighting to bring casinos to Texas for about 30 years. Today, you can bring that fight one step closer to entering the ring of public opinion. As D Magazine’s Tim Rogers pointed out, Proposition 3 on the democratic primary ballot reads thusly:

Should the Texas Legislature allow the people of Texas to vote to legalize casino
gambling with all funds generated being used only for education?

Now, this is just a vote to allow a vote, so don’t get too excited/hostile just yet. If I were a betting woman, I’d say we’re not likely to see neon lights and slot machines anytime soon.
