Next TUESDAY (April 8) the Florida Senate Gaming Committee will consider SB 742 which requires “Injury Reporting”. The Bill will be Amended to add “Decoupling”.
Please see the list of the Members of the Senate Gaming Committee. If you live or work in one of these Senators Counties pleas plan on coming to Tallahassee Monday afternoon to be in the Capitol Tuesday Morning at 8:00 a.m. with other Greyhound Men and Women. Please ask every Greyhound person and Track employee to call these Senators all day Monday and Tuesday Morning up to 1:00 p.m.
“We oppose decoupling for several reasons” The Constitution only allows live dog racing. Our most important concern is that decoupling would allow portability. Allowing decoupling would create one of the biggest gambling loopholes ever. If decoupling is permitted then existing pari-mutuels permits should be put out to public bid.
Please make your plans NOW to be in Tallahassee Monday night or as early Tuesday morning as you can.
Greyhound Nation depends on you!
