Legislative Update (SB 661)

Members,

Late last night our efforts to pass SB 661 (historical horse racing) fell short. While we had support from lawmakers the opposition from the Governor was enough to prevent us from taking a vote on the bill in the House of Representatives. The MHHA, and our coalition partners, want to thank everyone who called and emailed elected officials during our push.

At this time, we are weighing our options as move forward. We look forward to discussing this issue with the board and the general membership as we look to 2021.
