Senate Bill 226 by Senator Sharon Hewitt has been added to the Finance Committee agenda for Monday May 15th at 10:00AM.  This bill will eliminate the Video Poker Purse Supplement for Louisiana Bred Horses.  Please contact members of the Senate Finance Committee (listed below) and ask them to support the Horse Racing Industry by maintaining these dedicated Purse Funds.  Our industry generates over 1 Billion Dollars a year in economic impact and more than 73 Million Dollars in taxes paid to Louisiana.  YOUR CALLS MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  Ask the committee members to please vote NO on Senate Bill 226.

Thank you,
