Yesterday, a Florida State Senate Committee advanced a bill (Senate Bill 1594) that would decouple greyhound racing from other forms of gambling, removing the legal requirement that dog tracks host live racing in order to offer other forms of gambling. Click here to read yesterday's story in the Palm Beach Post.
This bill, along with its companion in the State House of Representatives (House Bill 1145) is one of the most important bills ever filed for greyhound protection. If approved, these will significantly reduce, and possibly end, greyhound racing in the Sunshine State altogether this year.
Your help is urgently needed to pass this historic legislation!
