Illinois racing has no leverage in the boosting the support needed to get slots at the racetracks . Lets face it the smart trainers like Roger Welch utilize Illinois as training track for his Indiana racing interests .
Even Illinois taverns have video gaming now that result in increased revenues for ownership . I think the horsemen should lease area/s inside the track and apply for video gaming Ala the taverns and VFW halls in Will County .
If the purse money is running out figure out a way to increase income needed before the purses are back to shit again .

Great idea!  Judging from his favorite people in racing his cabinet would consist of:

Pete Procopi - Vice Pres.
Duke Johnston - Finance Director
Phil Langley - Communications Chairman
Angie Affunti - Integrity Director

kellytuc , Who do you think would get some media attention more then LUCPARK . The public needs to hear from a guy who spends money and LUCPARK spends $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Only strike might be his move to buying Indiana Breds with Welch but it make sense .....
My vote is LUCPARK

The Video Gaming Law prevents machines in racetracks or within 500 feet of a racetrack.

There is also a limit of 5 machines per location.  5 machines in the grandstand might generate a couple grand over the course of a year to the purse account.

The slots bill allows 1200 machines at Cook County tracks and 900 elsewhere.

Hmmm, 5 machines or 1200?

As far as our Lobbyist go maybe the past couple years they may have been effective but since the introduction of the river boats in the early 90's they were lucky to hold the door open for those gaming meetings.  Plenty of people in the past have told me any late hour meeting before deadlines they weren't even ask.  Maybe it has changed some know but for a six figure salary I would ask more from those people.  If nothing gets done this session and a new bill has to be written I can see a screw job coming with a few new casinos and no slots at tracks.  Think about it Senate seats 40 democrats and the House 71 they can pass anything they want.  Racing worse nightmare.  That happens death penalty in Illinois for horse racing.  Old and Slow were is our 3% from the 10th casino.  Don't worry I know the answer many on here don't.  Will agree though if this bill passed it is the best by far of any state that shares revenue with a casino.

Illnois democrats can do what they want.....no excuses.  Republicans are powerless so if horseman get screwed don't blame them.  Just like democrats are supposed to be the party of labor....you will see the sharks in the water trying to take away people's pensions and benefits because of their incompetence.....

Sure they already taxed us more on income, tax more on cigarette and alchol, bottle water, city tax on food at restraunatns, not sure of the last tax on gasoline but Chicago pays about the most for a gallon of gas anywhere in the Midwest.  I'm sure I have missed a couple others since they can't squeeze the working public for more they will just take it away from you in the future.  Dan your a young health man I'm sure they expect you to work till your 70.

Personally, the group currently on the IHHA board has and is doing all they can. They are tireless. I'd like to know when and where Monday's meeting is? I'd like to attend if at all possible to see what more I can do.

Of course he won't be at the meeting.  People like Luc are a nickel a dozen.  They scream and yell and rant like little babies but when the time comes for them to step up and make a difference, they disappear, or complain about the time or place of the meeting.

Rocco a lot of people here in Illinois have a lot more at stake than you or I in this mess.  We can sell our horses and walk away.  This is not their hobby it is their way to make a living.   So I try and stay positive for their sake and try hope like everybody else that we get slots and survive.  The Democrats hold all of the cards and they have a super majority.  Rahm wants it and I think Rahm will get it
