AN  ACT  to  amend the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law, in
  relation to days of racing

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

  Section  1.  Paragraph  (d)  of  subdivision  1  of section 238 of the
racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law, as amended by chapter  18
of the laws of 2008, is amended to read as follows:
  (d)  The  pari-mutuel  tax  rate  authorized  by paragraph (a) of this
subdivision shall be effective so long as a franchised corporation noti-
fies the racing and wagering board by August fifteenth of each year that
such pari-mutuel tax rate is effective of its intent to conduct  a  race
meeting  at  Aqueduct  racetrack during the months of December, January,
February, March and April. [For] NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION OF LAW TO
THE CONTRARY, AND FOR purposes of this paragraph such race meeting shall
consist of not less than [ninety-five] SEVENTY-FIVE days of racing.  Not
later than May first of each year that  such  pari-mutuel  tax  rate  is
effective,  the racing and wagering board shall determine whether a race
meeting at Aqueduct  racetrack  consisted  of  the  number  of  days  as
required  by  this  paragraph.  In  determining the number of race days,
cancellation of a race day because of an act of God,  which  the  racing
and  wagering  board  approves or because of weather conditions that are
unsafe or hazardous which the racing and wagering board  approves  shall
not  be  construed  as  a  failure  to conduct a race day. Additionally,
cancellation of a race day because of circumstances beyond  the  control
of  such  franchised corporation for which the racing and wagering board
gives approval shall not be construed as a failure  to  conduct  a  race
day. If the racing and wagering board determines that the number of days
of racing as required by this paragraph have not occurred then the pari-
