Tex. Occ. Code Section 2025.105
Renewal of Inactive Racetrack License; Fees


The commission by rule shall establish an annual renewal process for inactive licenses and may require the license holder to provide any information required for an original license application under this subtitle. An inactive license holder must complete the annual renewal process established under this section until the commission:


designates the license as an active license; or


refuses to renew the license.


In determining whether to renew an inactive license, the commission shall consider:


the inactive license holder’s:


financial stability;


ability to conduct live racing;


ability to construct and maintain a racetrack; and


other good faith efforts to conduct live racing; and


other necessary factors considered in the issuance of the original license.


The commission may refuse to renew an inactive license if, after notice and a hearing, the commission determines that:


renewal of the license is not in the best interests of the racing industry or the public; or


the license holder has failed to make a good faith effort to conduct live racing.


The commission shall consult with members of the racing industry and other key stakeholders in developing the license renewal process under this section.


The commission shall set and collect renewal fees in amounts reasonable and necessary to cover the costs of administering and enforcing this section.


The commission by rule shall establish criteria to make the determinations under Subsection (c).
