HB 2723: COUNTY FAIR RACING; COUNCIL; APPROPRIATIONS
The Department of Racing is required to establish an application process and to award a single permit for an Arizona quarter horse racing circuit. Establishes the Arizona Quarter Horse Racing Circuit Coordinating Council to coordinate with each county and county fair racing association to promote an Arizona quarter horse racing circuit in conjunction with each participating county fair.
The Council terminates on July 1, 2023. Establishes the Arizona Quarter Horse
Racing Circuit Fund and requires the Dept to distribute up to $100,000 each fiscal year from the Fund to the county fair racing association of any county that conducts a county fair racing meeting. A racing meeting operated by a county fair association is no longer exempt from the requirement to pay to the state a percentage of the pari-mutuel pool collected at the meeting and from statutory audit requirements.
Appropriates $1 million from the general fund in each of FY2020-21, FY2021-22 and FY2022-23 to the Fund, and allows the Dept to distribute more than $100,000 to the county fair racing association of a county that conducts a county fair racing meeting in FY2022-23.
