  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.    Subparagraph  (iii)  of paragraph 1 of subdivision b of
section 1612 of the tax law, as amended by section  1  of  part  O-1  of
chapter 57 of the laws of 2009, is amended to read as follows:
  (iii) less an additional vendor's marketing allowance at a rate of ten
percent  for  the  first  one hundred million dollars annually and eight
percent thereafter of the total revenue  wagered  at  the  vendor  track
after payout for prizes to be used by the vendor track for the marketing
and  promotion  and  associated  costs of its video lottery gaming oper-
ations and pari-mutuel horse racing operations,  as  long  as  any  such
costs associated with pari-mutuel horse racing operations simultaneously
encourage  increased  attendance  at  such vendor's video lottery gaming
facilities, consistent with the customary manner of marketing comparable
operations in the industry and subject to the overall supervision of the
division; provided, however,  that  the  additional  vendor's  marketing
allowance shall not exceed eight percent in any year for any operator of
a  racetrack  located  in the county of Westchester or Queens; provided,
however, a vendor track that receives a vendor fee  pursuant  to  clause
(G)  of  subparagraph (ii) of this paragraph shall not receive the addi-
tional vendor's marketing allowance.  A COMMERCIAL BOWLING ESTABLISHMENT
THAT IS AUTHORIZED BY SECTION SIXTEEN HUNDRED SEVENTEEN-A OF THIS  ARTI-
CLE  SHALL BE ENTITLED TO A VENDOR FEE OF NOT LESS THAN 20.25 PERCENT IN
THE FIRST, SECOND AND THIRD  YEARS  OF  VIDEO  LOTTERY  GAMING  AT  SUCH
COMMERCIAL  BOWLING  ESTABLISHMENT, 20.0 PERCENT IN THE FOURTH AND FIFTH
