Chronology

In May of 1983, the Iowa Legislature passed the Pari-Mutuel Wagering Act, allowing qualified sponsoring organizations to apply for a license to conduct pari-mutuel wagering on horse and dog racing.  The Governor signed the bill and subsequently appointed the first Racing Commission on July 1, 1983.
