The chairman of the Board of Directors of the Association of Racing Commissioners International (ARCI) has formally announced the members of the committee recently formed to work with individual commissions to complete the implementation of the ARCI medication reforms.

The 12 members of the ARCI Compliance Committee, as it will be officially known, were invited by Chairman Mark Lamberth. Lamberth has assigned the committee members to three working teams, with each team reviewing the regulatory policies of a set of racing jurisdictions. The committee teams will begin by completing a thorough review of the medication policies in each United States jurisdiction, and then will work state-by-state to advance the ARCI medication reforms.

Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming.

Team B -- Rick Baedeker (California Horse Racing Board), Jeff Colliton (Washington State Horse Racing Commission), Tom DiPasquale (Minnesota Racing Commission), Dr. Corinne Sweeney (Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission). Arizona, California, Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Washington.

Team C -- Mike Hopkins (Maryland Racing Commission), Duncan Patterson (Delaware Thoroughbred Racing Commission), Robert Williams (New York State Gaming Commission), Frank Zanzuccki (New Jersey Racing Commission).
