Agenda: Agenda

The Committee will discuss the proposed adoption of the following proposals, which were published in the March 10, 2017, edition of the Texas Register.
1. Proposal to Amend Rule 309.154, Stable or Kennel Area
2. Proposal to Amend Rule 311.105, Jockeys
3. Proposal to Amend Rule 311.302, Subject to Testing
4. Proposal to Amend Rule 311.304, Taking of Specimens
5. Proposal to Amend Rule 311.308, Penalties
6. Proposal to Amend Rule 313.501, Training Facility License
7. Proposal to Amend Rule 315.1, Required Officials

The Committee will discuss the following staff requests for rule amendments:
* Proposal to Require Horse Owners of Less than 5% to Secure Stewards' Approval before Licensure. This proposal would provide that horse owners whose sole ownership interest is through a less-than-5%-ownership in a multiple ownership entity must secure the approval of the stewards before becoming licensed as a horse owner.
* Proposal to Create Two New License Types. This proposal would create two new license combinations: Groom/Exercise Rider and Groom/Pony Person. The new licenses would allow a person to participate in both roles with a single license and at a lower cost than securing separate licenses.
* Proposal to Allow the Presiding Steward to Complete the End of Meet Report. The proposal would allow the presiding steward to individually complete the end of meet report rather than requiring the participation of all three stewards.

The public will be given an opportunity to address the Committee and identify any potential subjects that it would like placed on the agenda for discussion at a future Committee meeting.
