Bill to End Dog Racing Advances

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- A bill ending greyhound racing in Council Bluffs but allowing dog owners to operate a track in Dubuque has advanced to a full Senate committee.
   Casinos in Council Bluffs and Dubuque, which spent $10 million subsidizing dog racing last year, say the industry is dying. The casinos have worked to end racing for years.
   Under the bill, Mystique Casino in Dubuque would pay $7 million and Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs casino would pay $65 million into a fund.
   Half of it would be used as a retirement fund for breeders and owners who stop racing. The other half would help the Iowa Greyhound Association lease the track in Dubuque.
   Racing in Council Bluffs would end on Dec. 31, 2015.
   The Senate Appropriations Committee will consider the bill Thursday afternoon.
