§ 23. (a) The Board shall promulgate as part of its rules and regulations a set of minimum
standards (including, but not limited to, a workers' compensation plan) to be observed
by race tracks.
(b) The failure of a person who has been awarded racing dates to observe the minimum
standards to be promulgated by the Board under subsection (a) of this Section shall
result in the mandatory suspension of the organization license of that person by the
Board. The suspended organization license of the person shall not be reinstated until the
minimum standards are observed. Those persons and tracks which apply for dates shall not be granted organization
licenses if they are not in observance of the minimum standards to be promulgated
by the Board under subsection (a) of this Section.
The Board may refuse to issue or may suspend the organization license of any person
who fails to file a return, or to pay the tax, penalty or interest shown in a filed
return, or to pay any final assessment of tax, penalty or interest, as required by
any tax Act administered by the Illinois Department of Revenue, until such time as
the requirements of any such tax Act are satisfied.
(c) The Board shall consider the operational needs of the Illinois State Fair and
the DuQuoin State Fair as this Section applies to the Illinois Department of Agriculture. In considering the operational needs of the Illinois Department of Agriculture,
the Board may waive any rule or portion of a rule when the physical structure, improvement
cost or other use of the facilities prohibits compliance within this Act or the Board's
