Arlington Asking Racing Fans to Write State Reps

Churchill Downs Communications | 05/07/2013 #

Dear Arlington Racing Fan,

The Illinois Senate passed a bill (SB 1739) on May 1 that will authorize electronic gaming (slot machines) at Illinois racetracks. This bill will save Illinois horse racing, create new jobs and provide needed revenue to the State.

The bill needs to now pass the Illinois House of Representatives and then be sent to Gov. Quinn to be signed into law. We need to tell our State Representatives of our support of this bill and they need to hear from individual Illinois residents.

Please assist by sending a letter to your State Representative.  If you are not sure who is your representative - click here:

Please include the bill number (SB 1739), the reason why he or she should vote for it and sign the letter with your address.

Thank you for your support.
