COTA started for claiming the funding for the upcoming event last year in the month of August but the an application made under the Major Events Reimbursement Program (MERP) needs to be filed by its representatives which would be F1 in this case. Everything took place smoothly everything was ready even the MERP Fund was approved but then according to Bryan Daniel, executive director of economic development & tourism at the state of Texas they apparently noticed something missing.
The state of Texas has introduced new legislation in 2017 that requires a human trafficking prevention plan filed before 31 days of the events the first day to receive the MERP funding. F1 had placed the plan in 2018 for the MotoGP motorcycle championship in April but from the looks of it, Grand Prix needed a separate one.

One would believe that F1 would be aware of any local law that can put its races in jeopardy but it didn’t seem to be the case this time around. The plan was finally filed 18 days before the main event on October 3. But the Funds still didn’t came and the reason was told to be the late filing of the plan which was due to filed before 30 days of the first day of the event and no later. In the light of this flaw, the MERP find F1 not eligible for the fund and the September 24th application approval was canceled. This caused a major back and forth between COTA and spokesmen for Texas with result reaming intact. It could be said that the requirement of the plan was fulfiller though not within the deadline but there is no guarantee this would help. All this while the situation worked to intensify the tensions between COTA and F1.
