NEW MEXICO (KSMX) – Once again, tomorrow, the New Mexico Racing Commission will have their regular meeting, with the sixth racetrack license a topic on the agenda. Although the item is listed, it is unclear whether or not the commission will award it. Nearly 30 items are set to be discussed during their meeting tomorrow, listing the sixth racetrack license as one of the last items on the agenda. Several firms are vying for the state’s final license for a racino, including three proposals that would place a venture in Clovis. Other proposals are in Tucumcari and Lordsburg. Previously, the commission has stated they were committed to awarding the license, however, that possibility of the license being awarded was halted late last year due to a lawsuit brought by those associated with the Lordsburg proposal. Another issue facing the award of the license is that Gov. Michelle Lujan-Grisham, who took office last week, also holds the power to replace any commission members at any time. The commission is set to meet tomorrow morning, 9:30 a.m., in the commission’s board room in Albuquerque.
