Summary: Currently, one may apply for a temporary license to conduct and host horse and greyhound races in Texas. These temporary licenses are valid for 2 years and allow an individual to host races in that county while they build the track. SB 1340 would make the temporary licenses valid for 6 years, to give the entities more time to raise funds for track construction.
Analysis: SB 1340 would remove a regulatory burden on Texans and reduce the frequency with which they would be required to go through a renewal process for these licenses.
