State Lawmakers didn't mean to but it appears that lawmakers have inadvertently banned horse racing in the state.
The state legislature failed to extend laws that allow live horse racing and simulcasting before the formal session ended this week.
The existing laws expired on Tuesday, which caused horse racing and simulcasting to be shut down yesterday.
A bill that would have extended horse racing and simulcasting for a year was never called for a vote as the session ended yesterday morning.
