Four's Statement about Vote to Continue Texas Lottery Commission

"I voted for the continuation of the Texas Lottery Commission to advance the good work of the Sunset Committee. Our state's constitutionally mandated lottery, which Texas voters enacted, needs strong supervision because it provides our public schools with billions in funding that we may not be able to replace at this juncture. While I am no proponent of gambling and gaming, I am not a proponent of running roughshod over the will of the voters and our constitutional amendments. After all, some would like to turnover the amendment that prevents a personal income tax in Texas, and I want no part in setting that precedent."
