this is what i got via email.
Great News! Texas State Representative Eddie Rodriquez recently introduced poker bill HB 292 (http://capwiz.com/pokerplayersalliance/utr/1/EIOOSMSTOG/GIJSSMSTTF/9115802601), to legalize poker in Texas.
Representative Rodriquez’s bill is different from previously introduced pro-poker bills because it designates poker as a “game of skill
,” issues poker licenses to bingo operators, licensed pari-mutuels and Indian tribes, and allows for charitable poker tournaments. It will also provide consumer protections that currently do not exist in Texas.
kinda fed up they call it texas holdem but cant play it legally in texas.im surrounded by states that can and are benefitting from it but texas refuses to jump on board and reap the rewards. ,go figure.
