Charles Perry On Expanded Gambling: NO!

On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, State Rep. Charles Perry said he is against expanding gambling in Texas.

“One, it is not the revenue generator people perceive it to be,” Perry said.  “It takes too long to get it in the system.  It would definitely not have an impact on this budget shortfall.  Two, I already provide free lunch, I already provide free health care, I already provide rent subsidies, I already provide multiple levels of support for a large demographic that plays the lottery system.”

Perry said expanding gambling would just move one revenue source to another revenue source.
