Georgia Pursues Parimutuel Betting Despite Governor's Opposition

The fact that Georgia Governor Nathan Deal recently repeated his opposition to any gambling expansion initiatives in the State did not seem to deter Representative Harry Geisinger from submitting a proposed bill that would lead to legal pari-mutuel horse race betting.

It was noted by local media that the proposed bill was submitted after two years of Geisinger's unsuccessful efforts to lobby his peers to vote in favor of pari-mutuel horse race betting bill, which comprises House Resolution 1, which allows for a public vote on amending the constitution to allow pari-mutuel betting and House Bill 4 which details how the process would work.

The bill will be considered in the 2013 Legislative Session, which begins on January 14, 2013 and ends around mid-April 2013.
