Both bills are based on the findings of a 2015 study by Spectrum Gaming Group, which concluded it would be in the best interest of the state to cease greyhound racing. The Spectrum study found that, with attendance and wagering in steep decline since 1990, state subsidies – from racetrack casino profits in 2012 accounted for $29 million of a $31 million greyhound racing industry. Spectrum, a leading independent research firm specializing in the gaming industries, concluded that, “Surely, the state of West Virginia could put the casino supplements to better use for the benefit of West Virginia.”
