    Chapter 5: New Jersey Racing Commission, powers, duties; definitons.

      Section: 5:5-172: Issuance of license authorized.

5. The commission is hereby authorized to issue a license to the authority to establish an exchange in accordance with the provisions of this act, P.L.2011, c.15 (C.5:5-168 et al.). The licensing process shall include the filing by the authority of an exchange wagering license application developed by the commission.

At the time of filing an application for licensure under this section, the authority shall submit to the commission a nonrefundable filing fee in an amount established by regulation by the commission, and a certification in a form prescribed by the commission which specifies, but is not limited to, information about the operation of the exchange and the authority's participation therein.

Within 14 days of receipt of a completed application, certification and applicable fees, the commission's executive director shall determine whether the same is in due form and meets the requirements of law in all respects. No later than 60 days following the receipt of the application, 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 exchange 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 affirmatively approved or not 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 establish the exchange. The exchange wagering license shall be valid for a term of one year, and shall be subject to renewal annually, unless a different timeframe is otherwise prescribed by regulation of the commission.

With the approval of the commission, the authority may enter into a contract or agreement with a person or entity to conduct or operate the exchange and to act as the agent of the authority in all exchange wagering matters approved by the commission. The exchange wagering license may not be transferred or assigned to a successor in interest without the approval of the commission and the Attorney General, which approval may not be unreasonably withheld.

L.2011, c.15, s.5.
