Letter to the Editor: Jerry Brown

First off, let me say that I have been fighting against the use of performance enhancers in racing longer than anyone reading this.

The points of disagreement in the HISA bill have been the removal of race-day Lasix and funding, which I'm not addressing here, and the makeup and selection process for the HISA governing bodies....
