Racing Restriction Bill 2003

Bill No. 179
Long Title This Bill is part of a package of four Bills aiming to establish a single controlling authority to be known as Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA).The purpose of this particular Bill is to ensure that no thoroughbred, harness or greyhound race for a stake or prize, or the purpose of betting, may be held unless the race is licensed by RWWA and is held at a racecourse that is licensed by RWWA. The Bill also implements a National Competition Policy Review recommendation to provide for the establishment of an 'approved racing organisation' as the controlling authority for horse racing that is not thoroughbred racing or harness racing.
