A group called Texans for Economic Development sponsored the ad. It features a series of post cards written to the state of Texas itself. The messages on the post cards are thank you letters from surrounding states that offer slot machine gambling themselves. New Mexico thanks Texas for its $27 million and Louisiana thanks the state for its generous contribution of $1 billion. It is a very clever way of making it clear to gamblers in the state all of the money that they are spending across state lines could be spent right there in their home state. That money could be taxed a local Texas casinos and the money would go back into making Texas a better state for Texans as opposed to paying for the schools and roads of neighboring states while Texas scrambles for new revenue.
