§ 12.1. (a) The General Assembly finds that the Illinois Racing Industry does not include
a fair proportion of minority or female workers.
Therefore, the General Assembly urges that the job training institutes, trade associations
and employers involved in the Illinois Horse Racing Industry take affirmative action
to encourage equal employment opportunity to all workers regardless of race, color,
creed or sex.
Before an organization license, inter-track wagering license or inter-track wagering
location license can be granted, the applicant for any such license shall execute
and file with the Board a good faith affirmative action plan to recruit, train and
upgrade minorities and females in all classifications with the applicant for license. One year after issuance of any such license, and each year thereafter, the licensee
shall file a report with the Board evidencing and certifying compliance with the originally
filed affirmative action plan.
(b) At least 10% of the total amount of all State contracts for the infrastructure
improvement of any race track grounds in this State shall be let to minority-owned
businesses or women-owned businesses. “State contract”, “minority-owned business” and “women-owned business” shall have
the meanings ascribed to them under the Business Enterprise for Minorities, Women,
and Persons with Disabilities Act. 1
