	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 2201, as introduced, Coto. Horse racing: audio or video
recording.
   Existing law prohibits a person from furnishing to another person,
and from using, an audio or video recording of any quarter horse
race occurring in this state for any commercial purpose without
permission from the racing association conducting the meeting, the
organization representing horsemen and horsewomen participating in
the meeting, and the California Horse Racing Board.
   This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to those
provisions.
