AUSTIN — Legislation to create up to 12 urban casinos in Texas is touted as a potential big moneymaker in lean times, but top Tarrant County elected officials aren’t sold on the plan and appear ready to resist efforts to bring a casino to Fort Worth, saying the potential downsides may outweigh the pluses.
"I would explore other sources of revenue before I would encourage casino gambling in our city," said Fort Worth Mayor Mike Moncrief.
"There are a lot of minuses as far I’m concerned," said Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck. "It wouldn’t be at the top of my list."
