With the deadline for funding of the Texas Racing Commission looming, we need to make a concerted effort for FULL funding. Short-term funding does nothing positive for the Texas Thoroughbred industry, especially with the SHRP and LSP spring meets coming up, breeding season and the Texas 2YO sale.
As a Texas horseman, we need you to call Rep. John Otto (who is Speaker Straus’ designee on the Legislative Budget Board) on this issue and ask him to stand strong for full funding. He can be reached at 512.463.0570. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, please call each the following members of the House Appropriations Committee, and urge them to contact Rep. Otto regarding full TRC funding:
