CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – Gov. John Lynch has signed a law banning live dog racing in New Hampshire.

The state’s two remaining dog tracks currently don’t conduct live greyhound racing and instead provide simulcasts of races held elsewhere. The law eliminates the tracks’ option of resuming live racing. It takes effect Jan. 1.

Supporters had argued the tracks aren’t racing dogs now and the state will save money by no longer regulating the activity.

Opponents had argued the state should let the tracks decide when it made financial sense to offer live racing.
