IMMEDIATE LEGISLATIVE ACTION NEEDED! HB585. THIS LEGISLATION WILL KILL HORSE RACING IN LOUISIANA!

May 11, 2017

ATTENTION LOUISIANA HORSEMEN 

House Bill 585 by Representative Jay Morris is assigned to be heard in the House Appropriations Committee on Monday May 15th at 9:00AM. This bill will reduce by half the Slot Purse Supplement Funds. It only takes funds from purses; it takes nothing from the Race Track’s revenue. It takes funds that are generated exclusively at Horse Race Industry Owned facilities. This would devastate our industry. Please contact members of the Appropriations Committee (listed below) and ask them to support the Horse Racing Industry by maintaining these dedicated Purse Funds. Our industry generates over 1 Billion Dollars a year in economic impact and more than 73 Million Dollars in taxes paid to Louisiana. YOUR CALLS MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Ask the committee members to please vote NO on House Bill 585.

Thank you,
Louisiana Thorougbred Breeders Association
