CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico officials are accepting new applications for the state's sixth race track and casino license.
The Eastern New Mexico News reports at least two eastern New Mexico groups are planning to submit proposals.
The groups, one in Clovis and one in Tucumcari, last week stated their intentions to apply for licenses to establish a "racino."
The Laguna Development Corp. says it plans to work with Miller Cos. to form "L&M Entertainment" and apply for a license to build a racetrack in Clovis.
The Tucumcari/Quay County Economic Development Corp. has a similar vision for a racetrack and casino in Tucumcari.
New Mexico Racing Commission Executive Director Izzy Trejo says applications are due by July 30. A decision is expected by the end of the year.
