The greyhounds need your help again!
As you know, in 2008 Massachusetts citizens overwhelmingly voted to end all betting and
wagering on greyhound racing. The Greyhound Protect Act passed by a margin of 56-44
statewide. However, despite this historic victory local gamblers are still being allowed to bet on
dog races in other states remotely, through simulcasting.
But today we bring you good news.
Tomorrow, the Massachusetts State Senate will consider an Amendment by Senator Patricia
Jehlen to fully enforce Question 3. This measure will be identical to a bill filed earlier this year and will phase out greyhound simulcast wagering for good.
Call to Action:
Please pick up the phone and ask your State Senator to SUPPORT the Jehlen Amendment on the floor tomorrow. Ask her/him to support the will of the voters on Question 3 because we should not be
propping up the cruelty of dog racing taking place elsewhere.

your State Senator, not U.S. Senator.)
Please make your call on Thursday, as early as you can. The greyhounds cannot speak for
themselves, and are counting on us to be their voice.
Let's make the 2008 vote on Question 3 count!
