A resolution to authorize a constitutional amendment on pari-mutuel horse racing and simulcasting has been introduced in the Georgia House of Representatives. The measure also calls for approval by municipalities or counties.
Magna Entertainment is on the move again, this time in Missouri, where pari-mutuel wagering is legal but no racetracks have been built. A bill co-sponsored by nine legislators has been introduced in the House and Senate, where it could be discussed this week. The legislation spells out the powers of the racing commission, a requirement that at least 50 days of live racing be held, and a mandate that a capital investment of at least $25 million be made to build a track.
