A legislative attempt to limit the number of horse owners who can serve on the California Horse Racing Board won't become law this year. The measure was left on the state Assembly floor without a vote as the 2007 legislative session came to an end.
Legislation limiting the number of commissioners on the California Horse Racing Board who can be licensed to participate in the sport has cleared the state assembly's appropriations committee and is headed for a full vote on the assembly floor.
The California racing industry voiced nearly united support for synthetic racing surfaces and for the board that mandated them during a packed California Senate committee hearing Wednesday, June 13, in Sacramento.
