IHHA Endorses House Bill 1917

The IHHA has endorsed Representative Molaro's H.B. 1917 and its amendments, which passed out of committee yesterday, Wednesday March 1.

The IHHA needs all horsemen and women to call their representatives in Springfield and urge them to vote YES on HB 1917. This bill could be called as soon Thursday, March 2 so we need you to call now.

The bill calls for the horseracing industry to receive 3% of the riverboats adjusted gross revenues. These proceeds will be split with the tracks and horsemen. Under a separate agreement negotiated between the IHHA, Balmoral/Maywood and Suburban Downs the harness horsemen will receive half of the proceeds and ALL future recapture will be WAIVED!!!!.

But, first we need this bill to pass. So immediately call your state representative and ask for their yes vote on HB 1917. If you do not know who your representative is please call the IHHA office.

If you have any questions you can call Jack Kelly at 630-738-0808 or Brenda Watson at 217-416-3973.

Thank You For Your Support !!!
