 Introduced  by  Sen. ADDABBO -- (at request of the New York State Gaming

 AN  ACT  to  amend the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breeding law, in

   Section  1. Section 218 of the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breed-
 ing law, as amended by chapter 243 of the laws of 2020,  is  amended  to
 read as follows:
   §  218.  Stewards  at  race meetings. There shall be three stewards to
 supervise each running race meeting conducted pursuant to  sections  two
 hundred  five  and two hundred six of this article. One of such stewards
 shall be the official steward of the commission, one shall be  appointed
 by  the jockey club or by the national steeplechase and hunt association
 as may be appropriate, and one shall be  appointed  by  the  corporation
 conducting  such  race meeting. Such stewards shall exercise such powers
 and perform such duties at each race meeting as may be prescribed by the
 rules of the commission. During the absence or inability to  act  of  an
 official  steward  of  the commission, or in the event of the failure or
 inability to appoint either of the other two stewards,  the  powers  and
 duties of such steward shall be exercised and performed [without compen-
 sation] by a [member of the commission] PERSON designated by the commis-
 sion for that purpose.
   § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
