      Section: 5:5-162: Purpose of compact.

           2. Purpose.

The purpose of this compact is to:

a. Establish uniform requirements among the party states for the licensing of participants in live racing with parimutuel wagering, and ensure that all such participants who are licensed pursuant to this compact meet and maintain a uniform standard of honesty and integrity.

b. Facilitate the growth of the parimutuel racing industry in each party state and nationwide by simplifying the process for licensing participants in live racing, and reduce the duplicative and costly process of separate licensing by the regulatory agency in each state that conducts live racing with parimutuel wagering.

c. Authorize the New Jersey Racing Commission to participate in this compact.

d. Provide for participation in this compact by officials of the party states, and permit those officials, through the compact committee established by this compact, to enter into contracts with governmental agencies and non-governmental persons to carry out the purpose of this compact.

e. Establish the compact committee created by this compact as an interstate governmental entity duly authorized to request and receive criminal history record information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and from state, local and foreign law enforcement agencies.
