Senator Hinojosa Introduces Bill to Legalize Gambling
Senator Juan Hinojosa has introduced a bill that will legalize slot machines in race tracks across the state including some in the Valley.
A piece of land in McAllen on 10th street and Dicker road is set to be the future location of a race track. Construction hasn't started on the project due to the recession and with this new bill, officials say, the new race track with slot machines would bring much needed revenue to the area. Officials hope to keep gamblers here instead of spending money in other states.
