Legislation Assemblyman Vince Mazzeo sponsored to permit casinos to negotiate the price of broadcasting horse races and retain simulcasting at their facilities is headed to the governor’s desk, having received unanimous approval from both the Assembly and the Senate. The bill would allow casinos and out-of-state racetracks to negotiate how much casinos pay to simulcast horse races. Currently, the “Casino Simulcasting Act” caps the rate a casino may pay at a fixed percentage of the amount wagered on each race. Without the capacity to pay a higher rate if simulcast fees increase, a casino runs the risk of being unable to provide the service for its customers, said Mazzeo. The legislation will pave the way for more casinos to carry simulcasts at their facilities, he said.
