On Wednesday, January 27, members of the Senate Regulated Industries panel in the State of Georgia approved a constitutional amendment and piece of legislation that could potentially lead to the legalization of pari-mutuel wagering on horse racing.

News of the decision comes courtesy of an article on washingtontimes.com. The piece explains that the bill was the subject of some changes before the committee passed it. The changes had to do with dedicated funding for gambling addiction programs and revenue for need-based college programs.

The article has cited the legislation’s Republican sponsor as saying that state Democrats will have to get on board if the bill is to make its way out of the Senate.
