The Maryland General Assembly's recognition of the state's racing industry can be attributed, in large measure, to efforts of the MTHA. This organization continues to be instrumental in educating legislators about the economic impact of the industry. The MTHA not only presents the industry's cause during official legislative sessions, but also at informal gatherings and legislative events. To enhance, and ensure, horsemen's representation in Annapolis, the MTHA employs two year-round professional lobbyists.
Political activities are supported by a Political Action Committee, which generates funds and solicits contributions that are used to support those elected officials who support the interests of horsemen.
Representing the interests of Maryland horsemen is a fundamental purpose of the MTHA, and this organization is deeply committed to fulfilling its designated role.
