Stakeholders Wait for Dog Racing Decision

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Greyhound breeders, casino operators and others are awaiting word on whether Gov. Terry Branstad will sign a bill approved by the Legislature that would end racing in Council Bluffs and limit the sport in Dubuque.Earlier this week, Branstad was noncommittal about signing the legislation. He must make a decision by June 1.The uncertainty has been difficult for breeders such as Melissa Schmidt, of Bellevue. She wonders what will happen to her dogs and her business.The Legislature overwhelmingly approved the bill, which requires casinos in Council Bluffs and Dubuque to pay $72 million. Half the money would go toward a fund for breeders, trainers and shelters. The rest would finance continued racing in Dubuque by the Iowa Greyhound Association.Copyright 2014 Associated Press.
