New Hampshire's House has rejected legislation that would have prohibited simulcasting greyhound races from three states that don't require reporting the dogs' injuries.
The House voted 243-108 Wednesday to kill the bill that targeted Florida, Alabama and Arizona because they don't require the reporting.
Rockingham Park race track and Seabrook Park simulcast races in New Hampshire. Bill opponents said placing limits on which races they could simulcast would cost them money and could mean layoffs.
Bill supporters said New Hampshire banned greyhound racing in 2010 because of a lack of humane treatment of the dogs. They said the bill supports humane treatment of animals.
