The Idaho Horsemen's Coalition has drafted a bill that would allow the state's tracks to reopen their Historical Racing terminals.

The Idaho Horsemen’s Coalition was unable on Tuesday to get a Senate hearing for a bill that would create a state gaming commission and enable the racing industry to reopen its Historical Racing machines.

According to the bill, the gaming commission would license and regulate online gaming.

“It is our hope and expectation to get this proposal to the Senate floor for a fair debate and vote and begin a controlled process to bring live horse racing back,” said IHC member Monty Arrossa.
