As we inch closer to the end of session, we continue to have high hopes that Senate Bill 737 will be called sometime late tomorrow (Tuesday) in the House.Once the bill is called in the House (and passes), Senate Bill 737 must return to the Senate so the Senate can concur or agree with the House’s amendments.All of this could happen very quickly.
This means that you must once again contact your SENATOR, especially the Republican Senators, to encourage them to vote YES on SENATE BILL 737.PLEASE DO THIS NOW!In addition to saving horse racing and related agricultural businesses, inform them that one of the House amendments will allow a larger percentage of the generated revenue from this bill to go to the state’s debt reduction.Let us know how your Senator responds.
Below is the list of Senators that are still undecided.Your calls really do make a difference. if any of these Senators are in your district please call them immediately and tell them what the passing of this bill will mean to you and the horse racing industry.
