LTBA Legislative Update:  Senate Bill 220
Senate Bill 220 Rescinded

Due to overwhelming opposition from horsemen from all sectors of the industry, Senate Bill 220 was rescinded by Sen. Eric LaFleur during the Louisiana Senate Judiciary B Committee Tuesday, April 30. The proposed legislation would have reduced race dates in Louisiana. Many thanks to all who contacted members of the Senate Judiciary B 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.

For more information, please call 504-947-4676 or visit louisianabred.com.
