- Mr. Williams of the Ad Hoc Commmittee was kind enough to send along the following information regarding the statute that requires the committee to make a formal presentation of its findings to the Governor and the Legislature:
The recommendation, by statute, requires the committee to "report its findings to the legislature, the governor and the racing and wagering board with recommendations for such actions as it deems necessary to implement its determinations regarding the corporation or corporations, association or associations to which such grants of authority and/or franchises should be made or granted, the legislation which should be enacted governing such grants of authority or franchises, and the responsibilities related thereto which should be assigned to the racing and wagering board and to such other state agencies or officers as it deems appropriate." See, N.Y. Rac. Pari-Mut. Wag. & Breed. L. §208.f.Thus, by law, the above procedure is what constitutes the formal recommendation, which the Committee is presently working on. That is the event which will then prompt the release of the information to the public.
