 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.
   §  2.  The racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law is amended by
 adding a new section 902-a to read as follows:
   § 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);
   (2)   FROM   AN   ACCREDITATION  BODY  THAT  IS  A  SIGNATORY  TO  THE
 INTERNATIONAL LABORATORY ACCREDITATION  COOPERATION  MUTUAL  RECOGNITION
 ARRANGEMENT; AND
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
