|Texas Horsemen's Partnership Statement to Members Regarding the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act of 2020
(Austin, Texas - Thursday, September 10, 2020) - The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act of 2020 has moved to the floor of the House of Representatives in Congress. This proposed legislation provides for national anti-doping and medication control regulations, which would be developed and administered by a national authority.
The Texas Horsemen’s Partnership is a strong advocate for the safety and welfare of racehorses and supports science-based medication reform. However, the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act of 2020, in its current form, has several flaws that need to be addressed before the THP can support the legislation.
THP will keep our members informed as the bill moves forward.
