House Bill 986 was voluntarily withdrawn on Monday May 2, 2016. Thank you for contacting the members of the House Appropriations committee and asking them to support Louisiana Horsemen. The Video Poker funds that are dedicated to supplement purses for Louisiana Bred horses will remain. Communicating your position to your Representatives is vital to our industry. Through the hard work of our Members, Board, President, and Staff, Louisiana will continue to be one of the top Horse Racing destinations in North America.
