Your Message

Dear Legislator,

As your constituent, I urge you to cosponsor H.R.1754/S. 1820, the Horseracing Integrity Act, and do all that you can to pass this important bill.

Congress considered banning drugs in horseracing in 1980, but instead allowed each state to make its own decisions on medications in the sport. The horseracing industry is now governed by a patchwork of 38 different states' regulations, which creates a system in which trainers caught doping their racehorses can move from state to state to continue doping and avoid tougher penalties.

H.R.1754/S. 1820 would establish an independent, non-governmental authority, created by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, to enforce uniform rules for legal and illegal medications in the horseracing industry. USADA is recognized by Congress as the official anti-doping agency for our Olympic, Pan American and Paralympic sports. The industry will cover all costs associated with this bill--not the taxpayer.

Signed,
[Your Name]
