SECTION 250
Power of commission to impose penalties
Racing, Pari-Mutuel Wagering and Breeding Law (PML) CHAPTER 47-A, ARTICLE 2
§ 250. Power of commission to impose penalties. The commission, in
addition to its power to suspend or revoke occupational licenses,
licenses to conduct running races and race meetings or steeplechases and
steeplechase meetings and licenses to conduct pari-mutuel betting at a
race course or race meeting for running races or steeplechases issued by
the commission, is authorized to impose civil penalties upon any such
licensee or franchisee for a violation of any provision of this chapter
or the rules and regulations promulgated pursuant thereto, not exceeding
the amounts set forth in section one hundred sixteen of this chapter,
which penalties shall be paid into the state treasury. Each day upon
which such violation continues may be considered by the commission as a
separate violation in assessing the amount of civil penalty to be
imposed. Any penalty so imposed shall be sued for by the attorney
general in the name of the people of the state of New York, if so
directed by the commission. The amount of the penalty collected by the
commission or recovered in any such action, or paid to the commission
upon a compromise as hereinafter provided, shall be paid by the
commission into the state treasury and credited to the general fund. The
commission, for cause shown and in its discretion, may extend the time
for the payment of such penalty and, by compromise may accept less than
the amount of such penalty as imposed in settlement thereof. The powers
granted by this section shall not be affected by the circumstances that
any such license has expired by its terms prior to the imposition of
such penalty.
