Excellent article but it's probably something we already know:

While a clear, concise recap of one of the main points of contention, it's hardly an "article"...not sure how they got a press release like this in the WSJ?

Sounds like letter to the editor.

It's clearly a Press Release paid for by Campbell (see the bottom of the "article"). It isn't a news article and it wasn't produced by a third party, so let's not give it any more credibility than it deserves.

Having said that, if what Campbell states is true i.e. nothing going toward purses from internet gambling (the purses should get a significant chunk of it) - then put me in the camp that favors killing that bill. Of course it will likely lead to a quicker demise for Haw and further decline into eventual oblivion for AP.

It is clearly labeled "Press Release."

Was only AP behind the wording in the bill? What is the position of the other track owners?

From what I understand the other track owners are on board with giving horsemen a cut of any i-gaming.
