AN ACT to amend the tax law, in relation to video  gaming  machines  and
  disposition of revenues

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

  Section 1. Clause (H) of subparagraph (ii) of paragraph 1 of  subdivi-
sion  b of section 1612 of the tax law, as separately amended by section
1 of part GG and section 2 of part SS of chapter 60 of the laws of 2016,
is amended to read as follows:

this  subparagraph, the track operator of a vendor track and in the case
of Aqueduct, the video lottery  terminal  facility  operator,  shall  be
eligible for a vendor's capital award of up to four percent of the total
revenue  wagered at the vendor track after payout for prizes pursuant to
this chapter, which  shall  be  used  exclusively  for  capital  project
investments  to improve the facilities of the vendor track which promote
or encourage increased attendance at the video lottery  gaming  facility
including,  but  not limited to hotels, other lodging facilities, enter-
tainment  facilities,  retail  facilities,  dining  facilities,   events

amenities; provided that such capital investments shall be  approved  by

capital expenditures will increase  patronage  at  such  vendor  track's
facilities and increase the amount of revenue generated to support state
education  programs.  The  annual amount of such vendor's capital awards
that a vendor track shall be eligible to receive shall be limited to two
million five hundred thousand dollars, except  for  Aqueduct  racetrack,
for  which  there  shall be no annual limit, provided, however, that any
