The Racing Commission continues its license application mail-out program reaching approximately 6,000 industry licensees and substantially reducing backlog at Commission offices. Also, the Commission continues to offer owners the option of procuring a three-year license. Many individuals have taken advantage of this option, which has helped reduce Commission staff workload during peak periods, and offers owners a convenient alternative to the annual license procedure.
In an effort to streamline the licensing process for owners, the Commission began participation in the ARCI multi-state licensing and fingerprinting program with surrounding jurisdictions. This enables a potential licensee who desires to be licensed in more than one selected state to complete the license process one time only. The other jurisdictions would accept the license application already completed and merely review for compliance with jurisdictional licensing requirements. (ARCI) The Commission also is a member of the National Racing Compact
