      Section: 5:5-140: Public hearing.

           14. a. Within 14 days of receipt of a completed application, certification and applicable fees, the executive director shall determine whether the same is in due form and meets the requirements of law in all respects, and upon being satisfied thereof, the executive director, within 45 days of receipt of a completed application, certification and applicable fees, shall hold a public hearing, the costs of which shall be paid by the applicant.

b. No sooner than 30 days nor later than 60 days following the public hearing, the commission shall make a final determination on the application. The commission shall approve the application if it determines that the authority has demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that wagers placed through the proposed account wagering system will be accurately processed and that there will be sufficient safeguards to maintain the integrity of the horse racing industry in this State. The commission's determination shall be submitted to the Attorney General for review and approval. The determination of the commission shall be deemed approved by the Attorney General if not affirmatively approved or disapproved by the Attorney General within 14 days of the date of submission. The decision of the Attorney General shall be deemed a final decision. Upon approval by the Attorney General, the commission shall issue to the authority a license to participate in the account wagering system.

c. With the approval of the commission, the authority may assign the account wagering license to a permit holder, provided that the authority shall retain responsibility for license renewals. In the event the authority assigns the account wagering license, the assignee shall reimburse the authority for its costs associated with the application for the license. With the approval of the commission, the account wagering licensee may enter into a contract or agreement with a person or entity to conduct or operate an account wagering system or facility for the licensee and to act as the agent of the licensee in all account wagering matters approved by the commission.
