Introduced by Sen. ESPAILLAT -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed  to be committed to the Committee on Racing, Gaming and Wager-
  ing

AN ACT to amend the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and  breeding  law,  in
  relation  to  prohibiting  the  use  of performance-enhancing drugs in
  horseracing

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

  Section  1. Legislative intent. The use of performance-enhancing drugs
in horseracing threatens the safety and welfare of horses  and  jockeys,
creates  unfair  competition,  deceives  horse  buyers  and the wagering
public. The use of performance-enhancing drugs  in  horseracing  is  not
permitted  in  most  jurisdictions outside the United States. The United
States stands alone in its permissive use of performance-enhancing drugs
and New York is no exception. In New York State the use of  performance-
enhancing  drugs  is  illegal in every sport other than horseracing. The
purpose of this legislation is to insure that the use of performance-en-
hancing drugs in horseraces is prohibited in the State of New York.
  S 2. The racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law is  amended  by
adding a new section 902-a to read as follows:
  S  902-A. PROHIBITIONS ON USE OF PERFORMANCE-ENHANCING DRUGS. 1. DEFI-
NITIONS. AS USED IN THIS SECTION:
  (A) "ACCREDITED THIRD PARTY CONFORMITY ASSESSMENT BODY" MEANS A  TEST-
ING LABORATORY THAT HAS AN ACCREDITATION:
  (1)    MEETING   INTERNATIONAL   ORGANIZATION   FOR   STANDARDIZATION/
INTERNATIONAL ELECTROTECHNICAL COMMISSION STANDARD  17025:2005  ENTITLED
'GENERAL  REQUIREMENTS  FOR  THE  COMPETENCE  OF TESTING AND CALIBRATION
LABORATORIES' (OR ANY SUCCESSOR STANDARD);

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD04080-01-3
