BILL NUMBER:S5200

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and
breeding law, in relation to including the city of Syracuse in the
capital district off track betting region

PURPOSE:

This bill would include the city of Syracuse in the capital district
off track betting region.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 - To amend the opening paragraph and paragraphs e and f of
subdivision 1 of section 519 of the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and
breeding law, paragraph e as amended by chapter 260 of the laws of
1987 and paragraph f as amended by chapter 125 of the laws of 1997.

Section 2 - Effective date

JUSTIFICATION:

The State of NY is currently moving toward allowing the voters to
decide whether there should be additional gaming permitted to provide
additional revenue sources, especially for the Upstate economy which
has not recovered as quickly as other regions. It has been well
documented that the City of Syracuse is experiencing severe fiscal
difficulty due to the current economy, increased mandates and a
shrinking tax base. This bill will provide the City Council with the
option to have an OTB operation in the City of Syracuse. This option,
if approved by the City, would provide an opportunity to receive
additional revenues.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This shall take effect immediately.
