Texas tracks allowed to reopen after temporary agreement reached


The Texas Racing Commission authorized the state’s tracks to resume simulcasting and racing operations Wednesday morning after a temporary funding plan for the commission’s administrative costs was announced by the offices of Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick. The extension covers 90 days and was agreed upon by the senate members of the state’s legislative budget board and John Otto, the House appropriations chairman.
