For the immediate future, please contact the members of the Legislative Budget Board to continue to ask that the TxRc be fully funded. We all need to thank the House members for their support and continue to place pressure on the Senate members to fully fund the TxRc.
Let the legislators know how you and your horse business are personally impacted by the shutdown of racing. Be sure to keep us informed of any particularly positive or negative response you get.
Also, there is some question as to whether Senator Joan Huffman has replaced Senator Craig Estes on the LBB, so call them both!
