of section
and related

Dear Mr. Freeman:
You ask several questions about the application of section 6.19 of article
179e, V.T.C.S., the Texas Racing Act. Prior to 1991, racetrack licenses were subject
to annual renewal. Two individuals had paid substantial racetrack application fees,
but, at the time of license renewal, were unable to obtain the required financing. In
1991, the legislature attempted to assist these two investors in a manner that would
permit them to reinstate their licenses without the necessity of beginning anew the
entire application process. The result of that attempt was House Bill 2263, Acts
1991, 72d Leg., ch. 386,  38, at 1458, which enacted section 6.19. That statute
provides, in pertinent part:
(a) A class 2 racetrack license revoked by the commission before
September 1, 1991, for the licensee's failure to demonstrate
financial responsibility may be reinstated as provided by this
(b) A licensee to which this section applies must apply for
reinstatement not later than January 1, 1992. The commission
may not require the licensee to pay an application or renewal
