AUSTIN, Texas — The House has approved a resolution to make the domino game 42 the official table game of Texas.

The measure was unanimously approved Friday morning during a flurry of consent bills. Despite the huge number of bills pending, state Rep. Erwin Cain of Sulphur Springs read a poem explaining the game and it's virtue as an alternative to poker. The poem was placed in the House journal.

The resolution now goes to the Senate for consideration.
