When I've done work in TX in petrochem plant communities, where I've had to research pay levels, contractor firms working at plants have never been low-wage. They are at least middle class. Is there something different about Lake Charles plants?

So open for gambling but closing on women's reproduction rights?

Sounds about right.

Is Abbott still open to legalizing gambling?
Or now that he won, he’s not going to do anything like a typical Republican

This would be wonderful. I am only in favor of casinos if they have a sports book. Time to keep this gambling revenue in Texas!

Like I said… Fertitta has and continues to support candidates within both parties.
