It is estimated that Texas currently loses over $8 billion a year in tax revenue to neighboring states which have legalized gambling. Some level of legalized gambling would help considerably to address state budget shortfalls. The proposal currently being considered by the state legislature is to legalize slot machines (video lottery terminals) only at racetracks. It is estimated this would add $2-$3 billion to state revenue. Other forms of gambling expansion which might be considered include poker parlors, slot machines at other locations, indian gaming and full casino gambling.
