BILL NUMBER:S7125

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law, in relation
to the definition of stallion for purposes of the New York state
thoroughbred breeding and development fund

PURPOSE:
To amend §§251 and 254 of the Racing, Pari-Mutuel Wagering and
Breeding Law ("Racing Law") to amend the definition of "New York
stallion" for purposes of the New York State Thoroughbred Breeding
and Development Fund ("Fund").

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one amends the Racing Law definition of a "New York stallion"
in relation to the minimum term of lease requirement for a leased
stallion.

EXISTING LAW:
The definition of "New York stallion" requires that a stallion be
leased for at least two years.

JUSTIFICATION:
The existing two year minimum lease requirement for a leased stallion
presents a disincentive to breeding in New York State, Reduction of
the minimum lease period to one year is expected to increase the
number and quality of stallions standing in New York, which will
inure to the benefit of New York agriculture, horse breeding, and
horse racing.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None noted.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
