Georgia voters won't get a chance to decide on pari-mutuel wagering during the November election but supporters say progress is made every year.
Legislation that would allow Georgians to vote on whether horse racing and pari-mutuel wagering should be brought to the Peach State passed out of the Regulated Industries Committee on a unanimous vote March 2.
A constitutional amendment that would allow Georgia voters to decide on legalizing horse racing and pari-mutuel wagering in their cities was assigned to a House Regulated Industries Committee during the week of Feb. 7.
