Is Vernon Downs about to close its doors forever?  Will Albany put a deal together to make the business operation profitable?

On Friday, WIBX spoke with local legislators and the owner of Vernon Downs to discuss the tax break legislation that didn't get passed before the NY Legislative summer break.

Listen to interviews with Vernon Downs owner, Jeff Gurall, Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi and NY Senator Joe Griffo.  We asked questions about the failure to pass legislation to offer the Vernon Downs operation the tax break it needs to be financially viable.  We also asked the question: is it possible that the legislature is punishing Jeff Gurall because of his negative comments and threats to close the operation if the tax breaks weren't passed.
