AN ACT to amend the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and  breeding  law,  in
  relation to justification for consent to authorize the simulcasting of
  horse  races  run  at  a  regional  track  at off-track betting branch


  Section  1.  Subparagraph  (ii)  of  paragraph  c  of subdivision 2 of
section 1008 of the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and  breeding  law,  as
amended  by  chapter  18  of  the  laws  of  2008, is amended to read as
  (ii) For any simulcasting facility located within an area of a  circle
whose  radius is forty miles, the center of which shall be measured from
a regional track, and as provided in section one  thousand  thirteen  of
this  [chapter]  ARTICLE,  the  board shall not approve such application
unless such regional track, as described in  subparagraph  (i)  OF  THIS
PARAGRAPH,  has  given its written authorization, provided however, that
[between thirty-one and forty miles] such approval shall not  be  unrea-
sonably  withheld. Such approval shall not be required if the simulcast-
ing facility is located without the forty mile radius or if the  sending
track  is a thoroughbred track in the Catskill region conducting a mixed
meeting. Such written authorization shall not be required nor shall  the
provisions of section five hundred twenty-three of this chapter apply to
those races that such regional track may elect to receive as a simulcast
race during its regularly scheduled race meeting.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
