Welcome to POKER IN TEXASWorking to make poker legal in Texas
Poker in Texas is a non-profit organization. We work with Texas lawmakers to pass laws that will make both online and physical poker legal, safe and open.
Here you can follow the efforts of our team as we work to get laws passed in the 2017 legislative session. You can also see the discussions we post relating to a wide variety of topics.
We keep our members and supporters updated as to how they can take action to make Texas Lawmakers aware of our cause. We also regularly post updated information about where you can come and show your support.
