The Florida Legislature has Adjourned for its 2014 Regular Legislative Session
May 5, 2014
Gambling started out as one of the Major issues of the Legislative Session with the Senate Appointing a Special Select Committee that traveled the State, spent $400k on a Study and made major recommendations that all were defeated.
Once again this year some of the Greyhound Tracks in Florida , GREY2K, HSUS, PETA and ASPCA failed to pass any bad Greyhound Legislation.
Decoupling died in Senate Committee thanks to a procedural move by Senator Jack Latvala.
SB 742 requiring Greyhound Injury Reporting died in Senate Messages to the House when House Speaker Will Weatherford refused to take up the Bill for consideration!
Senator Chris Smith filed the “Greyhound Safety Amendment”.
Rep. Kevin Rader filed Points of Order to help defeat bad Legislation.
