Proposal Number: PRN 2017-067
Proposal Description: The New Jersey Racing Commission proposes to readopt N.J.A.C. 13:74A, which was set to expire last month. N.J.A.C 13:74A sets forth rules governing the process for an individual’s placement on the Racing Commission’s self-exclusion list, as well as specific activities from which self-excluded persons are barred. The rules also address actions taken to enforce the self-exclusion restrictions, and the entities responsible for those enforcement actions. Following an administrative review by the Racing Commission, it’s been determined that the rules contained in N.J.A.C. 13:74A should be continued because they are necessary and reasonable, primarily for the purpose of providing “self-help” in support of problem gamblers and those who might be harmed by their gambling conduct. Under the rules, a person can voluntarily seek to be added to the State’s list of individuals barred from wagering on horse races. An individual who has been placed on the self-exclusion list cannot bet on horse races or appear at permitted racetracks and licensed off-track wagering facilities in New Jersey.
Summary of Proposal: A summary of the rule proposed for readoption is posted on the New Jersey Racing Commission Web site at: www.nj.gov/oag/racing/proposed.html
