Legalization of gambling harms the citizens of the state. The BGCT’s Christian Life Commission works in collaboration with Texans Against Gambling and the Campaign for Common Sense and Sound Public Policy to limit the spread of legalized gambling.

Legislative priorities

  • Oppose plans to expand gambling or add casinos as a business model for Texas.
  • Oppose proposal for VLT/slot machines.
  • Promote strong regulatory functions, transparency and accountability of state agencies related to gambling enterprises.
