Policy Brief
Gambling laws in Texas are anti-market. Gambling as currently exists in Texas and as proposed under this rule is conducted by economic cartels authorized by law or administrative procedure. This type of arrangement has nothing to do with free markets or individual liberty. In fact, it has more in common with the Stamp Act and other acts of the English Parliament that made certain forms of commerce illegal in the American colonies except when conducted by those approved by the English government.
