|Call to Action: Write a Letter and/or Sign This Petition Urging the Texas Racing Commission to Approve Rules for Historical Racing
(Austin, TX - Wednesday, July 9, 2014) - The Texas Racing Commission (TxRC) is currently considering approving rules for historical racing machines in Texas. During the public comment period currently underway, it is important for all horsemen to send a letter of support and/or sign a petition (click here to sign an online petition) supporting the approval of these rules.
On July 17, there is a public comment hearing in Austin on the subject of pari-mutuel wagering on historical racing in Texas. There will be no TxRC Commissioners present at this meeting. TxRC staff will compile a report to present to the Commissioners for their information, prior to the regularly scheduled TxRC meeting in August.
Horsemen do not need to be present at the July 17 meeting. However, we do need as many horsemen in attendance as possible at the August TxRC meeting.
If you have already sent in a letter of support, or signed one of the printed or online petitions, that is all you need to do for now and we thank you for your support.
If you have not sent in a letter or signed a petition, please do so today. The deadline for submission is July 27.
Please share this information with all your friends and associates, encouraging them to voice their support as well.
