Texas Racing Commission transfers funds to continue operations


The details of a temporary Texas Racing Commission funding plan that enabled the state’s tracks to resume operations after a one-day shutdown Tuesday are beginning to emerge. The commission has been granted authority to transfer $186,000 from already-appropriated funds to administrative cost accounts in order to operate for the next 90 days, according Dave Nelson, the chief of staff for Texas Sen. Jane Nelson. The temporary funding plan extends through Nov. 30.
