Chapter 313 Licensed Gaming Activities
313.720. 1. There is hereby created a "Missouri Breeders Fund", which shall not represent revenue collected and moneys received by the state.
2. The fund shall consist of those funds set aside for breeder incentives as provided in section 313.710, such registration fees for the owners and breeders of Missouri bred horses as the commission may provide by rule, such gifts, or bequests as the fund may from time to time receive and such funds as the general assembly may provide. Any gift or bequest shall be credited to such account as the donor or devisee may provide. If no specific account is provided by the donor or designee, such gift or bequest shall be divided equally among the three accounts.
3. The Missouri breeders fund shall be administered by the commission, with the advice and assistance of advisory committees designated for that purpose by the rules of the commission. The commission shall, at least biennially, carry out such audits as provided by rule. The costs of administration shall be borne by the fund. The commission shall have authority to promulgate such rules as may be necessary or desirable for the efficient operation of the Missouri breeders fund and to provide incentives for breeders and owners of Missouri bred horses.
4. The Missouri breeders fund shall not lapse and the interest earned on such fund shall be credited to the fund. The provisions of section 33.080 to the contrary notwithstanding, funds in the Missouri breeders fund shall not be transferred and placed to the credit of the general revenue fund at the end of each biennium.
