Press Release

Louisiana horsemen encouraged to contact their state representatives.

The Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders Association encourages all Louisiana horsemen to call House Appropriations Committee members and tell them to vote "No" on HB 833.

House Bill 833 by Representative Jay Morris is assigned to be heard in the House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday, May 1, at 9:30 a.m. This bill will reduce by half the Video Poker Tax Purse Fund. It eliminates half of the Video Poker Tax Purse Funds that go to Accredited Louisiana Bred Races. 

Please call the members of the House Appropriations Committee and ask them to support our Horse Racing Industry by maintaining these Video Poker Tax Purse Funds.

• Our entire industry generates over 1 BILLION DOLLARS annually in economic impact and more than 73 MILLION DOLLARS in taxes paid to Louisiana!

• YOUR CALLS DEFINITELY MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

• Please ask the committee members to vote NO on House Bill 833!
