BILL NUMBER:S6932

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law, in relation
to the distribution of surcharges on off-track winnings

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To extend the current authorization
for the distribution of surcharge revenues which will otherwise
expire on August 31, 2012.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This bill would allow the allocation
of specific surcharge revenues to the same racetrack to continue for
another five year period.

EFFECT ON CURRENT LAW:
Changes the expiration date from August 31,
2012 to August 31, 2017, in keeping with the length of previous
extensions.

JUSTIFICATION:
This is more a matter of "housekeeping" than anything
else. Every five years, the provision for the distribution of
surcharge earnings from off track winning bets has expired. This
year, 2012, is the year during which the last five year extension.
expires necessitating another extension in order to continue to
implement earlier agreements. Passage of the last extension was
accomplished without a negative vote.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
Chapter 365 of 2009 restored an inadvertent
omission of the five year extension-provision from a renumbering and
reordering of several racing law provisions.
Same As: A.9260 Pretlow

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
September 1, 2012
