BILL NUMBER:S5200A

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: 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 within 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.
