An Act To Redistribute the Agricultural Fair Support Fund
Emergency preamble. Whereas, acts and resolves of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and
Whereas, agricultural fairs require funding to support and promote a successful fair season in 2015; and
Whereas, in the judgment of the Legislature, these facts create an emergency within the meaning of the Constitution of Maine and require the following legislation as immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety; now, therefore,
Sec. 1. 7 MRSA 91, as amended by PL 2013, c. 368, Pt. RR, 1, is further amended to read:
91. Agricultural Fair Support Fund
Emergency clause. In view of the emergency cited in the preamble, this legislation takes effect when approved.
Current law divides slot machine revenue credited to the Agricultural Fair Support Fund between commercial harness racing tracks and agricultural fairs licensed to accept wagers on harness racing. This bill requires that slot machine revenue from the casino located in Oxford County and credited to the fund be distributed only to agricultural fairs licensed to accept wagers on harness racing and not to commercial tracks.
