This week on a special gambling edition of β€œIn Session. In-depth,” the chips fly, as both sides of the long-standing Texas casino debate take part in our roundtable – former state lawmaker John Montford from the pro-casino lobby β€œLet Texans Decide” and Rob Kohler from the anti-gaming Christian Life Commission. Tim Eaton from the Austin American-Statesman also joins the discussion.

Plus, we travel to neighboring Louisiana – a casino-friendly state –

to weigh the benefits with the bad. Where does that state spend its revenue, and is a re-introduced gambling bill in Texas really the answer to funding problems?

Join us Sunday at 8:30 a.m. for β€œIn Session. In-depth.” right here on KXAN.
