A bill amending language giving the Knoxville Raceway a tax rebate on their revised grandstand expansion project was not reintroduced before the last gavel fell in the Iowa Senate yesterday.

Senator Amy Sinclair says she is disappointed that the effort she cooperated on with Senator Dotzler to reintroduce the measure in support of the Raceway has failed. She says it is difficult to move policy bills forward in the final days of the session, but that she is committed to beginning the process in the first few days of the next session. Sinclair voted against the bill when it was last proposed and failed, but explained that she needed to be in the deciding majority to reintroduce it.
