           15. The New Jersey Racing Commission shall establish and administer a separate fund to be known as the "Casino Simulcasting Special Fund," into which shall be deposited the sums dedicated to the fund by section 13 of this act.

Moneys deposited in the special fund shall be annually disbursed in their entirety by the New Jersey Racing Commission and used for the following purposes in the following order of priority:

a. Moneys in the special fund shall first be used to pay the difference between the amount paid to the Atlantic City Racetrack pursuant to subsection c. of section 13 of this act and $2,000,000 in each calendar year during calendar years 1993, 1994, and 1995, except that if casino simulcasting in Atlantic City begins after January 1, 1993 and before January 1, 1994, the amount to be paid for calendar year 1993 shall be the difference between the amount paid pursuant to subsection c. of that section 13 and that portion of $2,000,000 determined by the following formula:

A = C

.....................

B D



here: A = 365 minus (a) the number of racing days in 1993, other than live racing days, prior to the commencement of casino simulcasting in Atlantic City that the Atlantic City Racetrack conducts simulcasting under the provisions of the "Simulcasting Racing Act," P.L.1985, c.269 (C.5:5-110 et seq.) or the provisions of section 37 of P.L.1992, c.19 (C.5:5-125), and (b) the number of live racing days conducted by the Atlantic City Racetrack in 1993;

B = 365 (the number of calendar days in 1993);



C = the total amount to be paid to the Atlantic City Racetrack;



D = $2,000,000.



b. From any amounts remaining after the payments required by subsection a. of this section are made, the New Jersey Racing Commission shall pay to each casino which began to conduct casino simulcasting within six months after the effective date of this act an amount equal to the breakage moneys and outstanding parimutuel ticket moneys resulting from wagering at the casino on simulcast horse races from out-of-State sending tracks during the first five years that the casino conducts casino simulcasting and 50\% of these amounts thereafter.

c. From any amounts remaining after the payments required by subsections a. and b. of this section are made, the New Jersey Racing Commission shall pay to each casino which begins to conduct casino simulcasting later than six months after this act's effective date, including casinos established after that date, an amount equal to the breakage moneys and outstanding parimutuel tickets moneys resulting from wagering at the casino on simulcast horse races from out-of-State sending tracks during the first two years that the casino conducts casino simulcasting and 40\% of these amounts thereafter.

d. From any amounts remaining after the payments required by subsections a., b. and c. of this section are made, the New Jersey Racing Commission shall compensate, in such amounts as that commission deems appropriate, the following entities in the following order of priority:

(1) any racetrack in this State which can demonstrate to the satisfaction of that commission that its financial well-being has been negatively affected by casino simulcasting;

(2) any racetrack in this State which that commission finds to be financially distressed;

(3) any horsemen's organization which will use the money to fund a project which that commission determines will be beneficial to the racing industry; and
