          16 XX (Ashburn; Chapter 12, Statutes of 2009).  

           FISCAL EFFECT  

          There are no costs associated with this legislation. 

           COMMENTS  

           1)Purpose  . This measure modifies the stated purpose of Horse  
            Racing Law to reflect the changes brought about by SB 16 XX.  
            Specifically, this bill removes the language which states that  
            pari-mutuel wagering on horseracing is intended to support the  
            California fairs. 

           2)SB 16 X2 (Ashburn; Chapter 12, Statutes of 2009-10 Second  
            Extraordinary Session)  provides among other things, that  
            beginning on July 1, 2009, and annually thereafter, $32  
            million shall be appropriated from the state's General Fund  
            and paid into the Fair and Exposition Fund for the financial  
            support of the network of California fairs.
