Adopted Amendments

Attached you will find adopted amendments for the following rules

  • Part 508, Substance Abuse amend Sections 508.50 and 508.60, Effective March 1, 2009.

    Rule 508 in its current form permits random urine testing and individualized suspicion testing for jockeys, drivers, starters, assistant starters and outriders. These adopted amendments extend individualized suspicion testing to all other licensees on the backstretch of a race track enclosure when there is just cause to suspect the licensee has purchased, sold or used illegal substances on the backstretch of the racetrack: these categories include grooms, exercise persons, hotwalkers, owners and trainers. The licensee categories eligible for random testing under 508.80 remain unchanged. These adopted amendments update the rule to bring it in compliance with current federal drug testing procedures and policies.

  • Part 1415, Starting add Section 1415.290, Effective March 1, 2009.
