Sid Miller (Tx House Dist 59) Wants to Push Video Racetrack Gambling This Session?

So... racetrack gambling is, according to this article in the Stephenville paper, declining. And some other states have put in video gambling at the tracks.

The profits from these terminals would go to the state and purses for various horse events. This would be a big economic stimulus at a time when Texas really needs it,” said Hudson.

Members of Texas H.O.R.S.E (Horse Organizations for Racing, Showing and Eventing) are putting together legislation to try and implement the idea of installing slot machines in racetracks.

Oh, brother. Remember how, in 2004, Rick Perry used SCHOOL FUNDS to pay a Las Vegas firm about video gambling. Republicans want gambling. Most people do not.

“I am opposed to the expansion of gambling and this legislation has failed every session but we’ve got to do something to stop the horse industry from leaving Texas,” said State Representative Sid Miller (R-Stephenville).

But?  Here's a yes or no question because it's not clear from that statement whether he would support gambling legislation or not. Yes? No?
