H.B. 940 which authorizes two more O.T. B.’s to Fairmount’s current allotment of seven, passed both Houses this afternoon. This opens an avenue for more purse money in the future. This makes it vitally important for us to continue to work toward passage of additional forms of gaming. As important as the passing of A.D.W. was, it will take a major gaming bill to truly allow us to turn the corner and level the playing field with our surrounding racing jurisdictions. With Springfield failing once again to pass a budget, it gives us a chance to lobby for a gaming bill all through the rest of this year. I will continue to give legislative updates as we go along.

Congratulations to all Fairmount horsemen. Passing A.D.W. was a must for racing at Fairmount to continue. This will play a big part in our immediate future. Other ideas are on the table as well and I will keep you updated as to their progress.

Good news from Springfield! The Senate Executive Committee just passed H.B. 335. It will now go to the Senate floor. The bill extends the A.D.W. law until December 31, 2018 which is very good news for Fairmount horsemen.
