King has received money from the Kickapoo Traditional Tribe of Texas ($12,500 as of Nov. 14, 2012) and authored a few bills (most recently HJR 113 in 2011, which did not pass) that would authorize gaming conducted by the tribe. The tribe has land in King's district, in Maverick County.
The Texas Hearing Aid Association (of which King, who was in the hearing aid business for nearly 25 years, is a volunteer past president) is one of his biggest donors — as of Nov. 14, 2012, he was the only lawmaker it had given money to ($18,750). In 2009 he authored a related law, HB 594, that altered and clarified some licensing requirements for hearing aid dispensers. King said he had already sold his own hearing-aid business when he introduced the bill.
