Last month, Political Buzz reported about a freshly filed bill in the Texas Legislature that seemed to have long odds of being a major issue during the approaching session.

In early November, State Rep. Joe Deshotel filed a bill proposing that Texas allow casino gambling in Galveston and other cities as a mean of funding wind insurance and paying for catastrophic flood damage.
