Minnesota Legislature Passes Bill To Assist Racetracks As They Get Back On Their Feet

As racetracks in Minnesota look forward to reopening next month, the state’s legislature is cutting them a break with the hope of helping them make ends meet.

The Minnesota Star Tribune reported Monday that a bill passed by the state Senate and House will temporarily lower the portion of regulatory fees the tracks must pay, and reduces the number of race dates needed to offer wagering on card games.

Previous language required 50 or more dates, but the bill allows tracks to run less in the face of “circumstances beyond the licensee’s control.”

Canterbury is slated for a 52-date meet beginning June 10, while Running Aces is panning 50 cards for a harness meet starting June 20.
