NH House rejects limits on simulcasting dog races
New Hampshire's House has rejected limits on simulcasting dog races. The House voted Wednesday to kill a bill that targeted Florida, Alabama and Arizona, because, these states don't require reporting when race dogs are injured. Bill opponents say placing limits on which races they could simulcast would cost them money and could mean layoffs. Bill supporters say New Hampshire banned greyhound racing in 2010 because of a lack of humane treatment of the dogs.
