This year’s National Issues Forum will be held on Tuesday, June 18, in Washington,DC during the AHC’s annual convention, which will run from June 16 to 19 at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington,DC.
On May 21, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013 (S. 744). The bill would increase border security, provide a path for unauthorized immigrants to remain in the country and eventually apply for citizenship, implement an employment verification system, and improve current and create new temporary guest worker programs.
Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) and Representatives Joe Pitts (R-PA), Ed Whitfield (R-KY), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and Anna Eshoo (D-CA) have introduced the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act of 2013 to regulate/prohibit substances, methods and treatments that may be used in racing. The legislation is not the same as the bill they introduced in the last Congress.
