Impact Of HISA Key Topic At Meeting Of National Council Of Legislators From Gaming States

The current impact of the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA), which was officially launched on July 1, 2022, will be discussed by an expert panel when National Council of Legislators from Gaming States convenes its Winter Meeting, Dec. 8-11, at Resorts World Las Vegas.

HISA's early impact on the racing industry and on the role of state racing commissions will be examined. Are states fully cooperating, or are some joining New York in providing moral support while retaining their own authority? The NCLGS Committee on Pari-Mutuel, chaired by Delegate Jason Barrett from West Virginia, will hear from the following experts:

  • Dave Basler, Executive Director, Ohio Horsemen Benevolent and Protective Association (HBPA), and Committee Chair, National HBPA Model Rules and Medication Committee
  • Steve Geller, former Florida Senator, and NCLGS General Counsel
  • Joe Lucas, Chairman, Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission
  • Ed Martin, President and CEO, Association of Racing Commissioners International

The four-day Winter Meeting will include six NCLGS Committee presentations, two general session panels, morning and luncheon keynote addresses, International Masters of Gaming Law Masterclasses, 2023 igaming legislative preview, two evening networking receptions, and off-site tours.

As the only gaming conference that focuses on legislative decision-makers, the NCLGS Winter Meeting will attract dozens of lawmakers from across the country among the more than 300 expected attendees. Other attendees will include regulators, operators, suppliers, attorneys, lobbyists, media and other stakeholders interested in discussing all aspects of regulated gambling.

The Sports Betting Regulators Association, a project of the Association of Racing Commissioners International, will once again co-locate with NCLGS, meeting on Dec. 8.
