AN ACT in relation to establishing the legislative task force on respon-
  sible gaming

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings. a. The legislature hereby finds  that
the  recently  enacted 2012-2013 New York state budget amended the state
constitution to allow for non-tribal casino gaming in New York. It  also
included  provisions  to create a New York state gaming commission, as a
result of the merger between the division of lottery and the racing  and
wagering board. The commission is charged with oversight of the division
of  lottery,  the division of charitable gaming, the division of gaming,
and the division of horse racing and pari-mutuel wagering. This legisla-
tive action consolidated the state's gaming regulatory functions under a
single oversight body.
  b.  The legislature further finds that the development of policies and
procedures that foster responsible gaming practices by gaming facilities
licensed or enfranchised by the New York state gaming commission or  its
divisions  is necessary to mitigate the risks or consequences associated
with problem gambling. The legislature concludes that this can  be  best
accomplished by the creation of a task force on responsible gaming.
  S 2. Legislative task force on responsible gaming.  A legislative task
force on responsible gaming is hereby established to:
  (a)  Identify policies and programs that mitigate the risks and conse-
quences associated with  compulsive  gambling  and  promote  responsible
gaming practices for all gaming activities authorized in New York state.
  (b) Recommend policies and procedures to be promulgated in regulations
by  the  New  York  state  gaming commission and its divisions to ensure
