AN ACT TO AMEND SUBCHAPTER II, SECTION 522 (c), TITLE 28, DELAWARE CODE, RELATING TO LICENSES TO CONDUCT HARNESS RACING MEETS.
WHEREAS, SENATE BILL NO. 371 has been passed by the Senate; and
WHEREAS, it appears that there is an error in the title of said SENATE BILL NO. 371.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:
Section 1. Amend Subchapter II, Section 522, Title 28, Delaware Code, by striking subsection (c) thereof in its entirety and inserting in lieu thereof a new subsection (c) as follows:
(c) The Commission shall, on or before the Fifteenth day of January of each year award all dates for harness horse racing in this State for the current year, but the dates so awarded subject to the provisions hereafter stated shall not exceed one hundred (100) days in the aggregate for New Castle County, one hundred forty (140) days in the aggregate for Kent and Sussex Counties. The dates available for award to Kent and Sussex Counties shall be used by the licensees in Kent and Sussex Counties for racing in only those counties. If the harness racing dates as applied for do not conflict with each other, the Commission shall award the dates applied for; but if the harness racing dates as applied for conflict with each other, then the racing dates awarded in any year for Harrington Raceway shall begin September 1st, or if that day falls on a Sunday, September 2nd, and shall not conflict or overlap with the racing dates awarded to any other licensee. Provided, however, that there shall be no racing between December 19 and December 25, inclusive. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, Harrington Raceway shall have at its option the right to race seventy (70) days from September 1st until November 24th.
Approved July 10, 1969.
