Attention !!!

Attention !!!

SB 2877 (Video Gaming Terminals at tracks) was heard this morning and it passed out of committee on a 7-2 vote.

Now the lobbyists and the bill sponsor will work all legislators to see if they can muster the votes to pass on the floor. If they feel they have the votes it will be called to the floor in the house, we would need 60 yes votes there. If by chance it would pass the house it would then go back to the Senate for a vote and we would need 30 votes there.

We must now wait to see where we are, most likely nothing more will happen today, probably tomorrow or Weds. The second anything happens I will let all know.

Still allot to do and a long way to go, but as of this moment we are still in the game !!!
