Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Video Gaming Act. Allows for video gaming by organization licensees and inter-track wagering location licensees under the Illinois Horse Racing Act of 1975; makes conforming changes throughout the Video Gaming Act and in the Criminal Code of 2012. Removes references to organization licensees and inter-track wagering location licensees from the definition of "licensed establishment". Provides that an organization licensee who held that license in 2016 may operate up to 150 video gaming terminals on its premises at any time and an inter-track wagering location licensee may operate up to 5 video gaming terminals at the inter-track wagering location licensee's location or on the premises of the organization licensee with which they are affiliated. Requires organization licensees and inter-track wagering location licensees to deposit 47% of their share of the net terminal income from video gaming into the horsemen purse accounts associated with their respective racetrack to be distributed by agreements between breeds unless the organization licensee and the horsemen associations representing the largest number of owners, trainers, jockeys, or standardbred drivers who race horses at that organization licensee's racing meetings agree to allocate expenses associated with the video gaming terminals. Makes other changes.

House Committee Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Requires organization licensees and inter-track wagering location licensees to deposit 50% (rather than 47%) of their share of the net terminal income from video gaming into the horsemen purse accounts associated with their respective race track (rather than race track to be distributed by agreements between breeds unless the organization licensee and the horsemen associations representing the largest number of owners, trainers, jockeys, or standardbred drivers who race horses at that organization licensee's racing meetings agree to allocate expenses associated with the video gaming terminals). Provides that at a race track located in Cook County that races multiple breeds, the share of net terminal income deposited into the horsemen purse account shall be distributed equally among the breeds unless the organization licensee and the horsemen associations representing the largest number of owners, trainers, jockeys, or standardbred drivers who race horses at that organization licensee's racing meetings agree to a different distribution.
