There are LOTS of things that could be done to enhance the revenue stream and Texas Hunters access to the Lottery System...those long suggested ideas have a snowballs chance in hades chance of every happening though 'cause the Poobahs in Austin don't want it to happen that way...just like the Legislature conveniently robs the Dedicated TPW Funds anytime they want to... instead of funding everyday stuff they are supposed to fund Out the General Fund that is supposed to be the source of $$'s for the States everyday expenses & projects & bills due OUTSIDE of the TPW Park System's Budgets and Dedicated Funding . And don't get me started on the Rainy Day Fund that's sitting there unused and getting bigger by the day that is supposed to cover the unusual non repetitive or emergency funds needed for storm damage et al...but hasn't been touched in years for anything except to brag about.
Hate to sound a grumpy old stinker with an agenda but I AM a grumpy old stinker when Texas politicians play with the Citizens of Texas's money like they were free poker chips to waste at a Vegas Casino and the Citizens are sheep to be sheared every year for the Lege's latest whims.
JMHO & YMMV
Hell YA!! Well said because it was said with truth and heart. Elected Employees
