Game On: How are Game Rooms Regulated?

From the coin-operated machines used to run arcades to the gaming devices with keno, bingo or blackjack, HD 95 residents have expressed the need for clarity regarding the legality, accountability and oversight of area game rooms.
To provide residents with transparency as to the regulatory authority of game rooms, Rep. Nicole Collier will host a town hall, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., on Wednesday, November 13, 2019. The town hall will be held at the Tarrant County College Opportunity Center, 5901 Fitzhugh Avenue, room 1440, in Fort Worth.
"Residents in my district want to know what is being done at the state, county, and city level to address the influx of game rooms in the community," said Representative Collier. "This town hall will answer many of their questions including, which governmental entity provides oversight, they type of oversight provided, as well as the extent of oversight provided."
Featured speakers at the town hall will include senior officials from the state of Texas, Tarrant County, and the City of Fort Worth.
