A piece of legislation that will benefit the Texas racing industry was signed by Governor Abbot.

House Bill 2463/Senate Bill 1991 is a purse matching bill that would take a portion of the money collected by the state on the taxable sale of horse feed, supplement and tack to create an  incentive fund that would increase purses to bring quality race horses and breeding operations back to Texas. The bill, which creates no new taxes, would make Texas racing regionally competitive again.
