The Capitol Rotunda.
An area normally filled with lobbyist in suits carrying ideas. But Tuesday, men and women dressed in green shirts carried posters and a message.
Don't kill their jobs.
"This is a job's bill - it'll save more jobs, it'll create more jobs," Horsemen's Park General Manager Greg Hosch said.
The bill, would allow folks to bet on old horse-races, in new gambling machines. The races would be chosen at random, no place or time would be listed and the horses wouldn't be named.
"The thoroughbreds create the trickle down affect from the farmer, to the businessman, the grocery store," Marvin Johnson breeds Racing Horses.
Julie Larmon also owns land and horses.
"We get a good return on our monies when the racing industry is here, because there are many more horses and many more options," Larmon said.
But just like the bill has a throng of supporters, there are those who just want it to go away. As it stands, there are 14 amendments on file, to kill the bill completely.
"It'll not only provide for five racetracks to become 'racecinos', but it'll also open the state for Indian casinos and tribes and that would be unlimited and unregulated," Gambling with the Good Life Director Pat Loontjer said.
A couple of years ago, the same type of bill was introduced in the legislature.
It got shot down.
"The young people are geared toward fast speed's of gambling and horse-racing is not that. It's past it's time," Loontjer said.
Time will tell whether the horse-bill wins or loses this race.
