Reconstitutes the Racing Board into the Racing Industry Transition Agency. Sets up a process to charge fees to offshore betting operators providing betting services to NZers. The Bill reduces over a 3-year period, and then repeals, the totalisator duty currently paid by the NZRB to the Crown and sets up a new regulatory framework for the distribution of funds to sporting bodies, allows betting on sports not represented by a domestic national sporting organisation, provided an agreement is in place with Sport NZ. Further legislative reform is proposed. First reading on May 28 with National opposed with MPs expressing concern sporting bodies would lose out with the new distribution process.
