Senate Bill 226 which would have had devastating effects to the racing and breeding industry has been voluntarily deferred.
Many thanks to all who contacted members of the Senate Finance Committee. Your involvement has made all the difference! This has been a real work of cooperation between members of the LTBA, LQHBA, and LaHBPA, proving that when we join forces we all benefit.
A special note of appreciation to Commissioner of Agriculture, Dr. Mike Strain and former State Representative Arthur Morrell who spoke eloquently on the behalf of our industry.
