LAREDO, TX. – For the third consecutive legislative session, state Rep. Richard P. Raymond will propose a law to regularize the activity of slot machines and will raise the amount of cash prizes that are awarded.
The legislator said the sessions in the Texas Congress will begin on Jan. 8 and is already preparing its proposal in order to have a law that can stop the irregularities.
“We need legislation that can help these businesses flourish without the shadow of giving illegal cash prizes,” he said.
He said that he tried to pass the bill twice before Congress, but failed to gain support from both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
