Blue Grass State's racetracks

Kentucky state Rep. Greg Stumbo says he will propose a bill for the 2009 legislative session to allow the Blue Grass State’s racetracks to become racinos. The bill from the former attorney general earmarks funds raised by the racinos to be used to reduce registration taxes on boats and vehicles and to help create larger racing purses.
