AN  ACT  to  amend the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law, in
  relation to certain payments to the horsemen's organization

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

  Section  1.  The  opening paragraph of subdivision 2 of section 228 of
the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law, as amended by chapter
175 of the laws of 2011, is amended to read as follows:
  The state racing and wagering board shall, as a condition  of  racing,
require  any  franchised corporation and every other corporation subject
to its jurisdiction to withhold one percent of all purses,  except  that
for  the  franchised corporation, starting on September first, two thou-
sand seven and continuing  through  August  thirty-first,  two  thousand
[twelve]  THIRTEEN, two percent of all purses shall be withheld, and, in
the case  of  the  franchised  corporation,  to  pay  such  sum  to  the
horsemen's  organization  or  its  successor  that was first entitled to
receive payments pursuant to this section in accordance  with  rules  of
the  board  adopted  effective  November third, nineteen hundred eighty-
three representing at least fifty-one percent of the owners and trainers
utilizing the facilities of such franchised corporation, on  the  condi-
tion that such horsemen's organization shall expend as much as is neces-
sary,  but  not  to exceed one-half of one percent of such total sum, to
acquire and maintain the equipment required to establish a program at  a
state  college within this state with an approved equine science program
to test for the presence of steroids in horses,  provided  further  that
the  qualified organization shall also, in an amount to be determined by
its board of directors, annually include in its expenditures for benevo-
lence programs, funds to  support  an  organization  providing  services
necessary  to  backstretch  employees,  and,  in the case of every other
corporation, to pay such one percent sum of  purses  to  the  horsemen's
organization  or  its  successor  that  was  first  entitled  to receive
payments pursuant to this section in accordance with rules of the  board
