The House Just Killed The Texas Lottery

Anyone see that coming?

Edit: One of the first stories about it is here. ("Texans spent $3.8 billion on lottery tickets in the 2011 fiscal year, according to the Legislative Budget Board. The majority of that was paid out to players and retailers, with $963 million transferred to the Foundation School Account. Another $8.1 million was transferred to the Texas Veterans Commission.")

Edit at 4:15. Well, this was a weird day . . .
