Bill To Repeal Instant Racing Advances

Published: February 18, 2015 01:55 pm EST

It has been reported that on Tuesday, February 17 the Idaho Senate voted 25-9 in favour of a bill that would repeal a law which allows Instant Racing machines.

News of the vote comes courtesy of an article by Boise State Public Radio which explains that some Senators believe that the machines that are currently in operation now are not the machines that they intended to legalize two years ago.

The report states that the repeal bill will now make its way to the Idaho House.

Concern about the machines is nothing new, as politicians in the state have been voicing displeasure with the terminals since early 2014.
