BILL NUMBER:S5482

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law,
in relation to the task force's report, and to amend
chapter 342 of the laws of 2005, amending the racing,
pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law relating to establishing a task
force on the utilization of retired race horses, in relation to the
effectiveness thereof

PURPOSE:
To extend for two years relating to establishing a Task Force on
Retired Race Horses to identify and encourage more productive uses
for race horses after their use in the racing industry has ended.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1: Amends the Racing, Pari-mutuel Wagering and Breeding Law
relating to establishing a task force on the utilization of retired
race horses. Section 2: This act shall take effect immediately and
shall expire and be deemed repealed December 31, 2013.

JUSTIFICATION:
In 2005, legislation was chaptered to establish a Task Force to
identify new work that is suitable for retired race horses. Race
horses in this state provide millions of persons across the country
with a valuable entertainment forum. However, those race horses, once
retired, sometimes do not have bright prospects for future
employment. Increasing the value of such animals will go a long way
towards keeping such animals alive and increase their ability to
retire with dignity. Further, this Task Force is to explore the
possibility of developing new markets to increase the value of
retired race horses.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediate, with the Task Force to expire on December 31, 2013.
