This morning’s hearing on SB 1011, the bill to repeal “instant racing” in Idaho, has run out of time. “We didn’t quite get halfway through the people who signed up, so we’ll continue that,” said Senate State Affairs Committee Chairman Curt McKenzie, R-Nampa. He said the committee will continue the hearing at its next meeting, which is Wednesday morning, and likely vote that day.

You can read my full story here at spokesman.com on today's hearing, and how the Greyhound Park Event Center in Post Falls says it'll shut down if SB 1011 passes.
