State lawmakers are taking steps to try to revive horse racing in Michigan. There were once 25,000 employees in the state’s horse racing industry. That number has dwindled to about 9,000 and some fear that number will wither away without legislative action. WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick said a bill that’s been working its way through the state legislature would revamp the state’s existing Horse Racing Act in a way that horse racing groups say will improve their financial situation.
