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  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 legislative
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.
  § 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
