Florida Dog Racing Bill

The Florida House has passed a bill that could help phase out live dog races.

Members of the Florida House have passed a bill that could potentially end dog racing in the state. Currently, Florida track owners are legally required to hold dog races in order to have other forms of gambling, such as poker, on site. The bill would remove this requirement, and is currently backed by greyhound dog activist groups, such as Grey2K USA and USA Defenders of Greyhounds, and track owners alike. Betting on dog races has decreased by 69 percent in the past 20 years, so it is likely that tracks are likely to discontinue races for business reasons. Florida is one of the few remaining states where greyhound racing is still legal.
