Section 11-65-24

Application for permit.

Any person, firm, corporation, or partnership desiring to obtain a permit as required by this chapter shall make application therefor on a form prescribed by the appropriate commission. Each individual applicant and each principal of any firm, chief executive officer of any corporation, and managing partner of any partnership applying for a permit for such firm, corporation, or partnership, as the case may be, shall be photographed and fingerprinted and shall supply such information as such commission may require. All information contained in, or submitted in support of, any application for a permit shall be confirmed by an affidavit of the person or persons making such application, whether such application shall be made on behalf of such person or persons or on behalf of a firm, corporation, or partnership. Any application for a permit made by an individual who seeks to work at a racing facility under the jurisdiction of a commission and any application for a permit made by a firm, corporation, or partnership that seeks to provide services or sell merchandise at such racing facility, as the case may be, shall include a statement as to whether such individual, or any owner, principal, officer, director, or partner of such firm, corporation, or partnership, or any employee of such firm, corporation, or partnership who will actually work at such racing facility, has ever been convicted of a felony or other offense involving moral turpitude. Any firm, corporation, or partnership which has previously received an effective permit from a commission to provide services or sell merchandise at a racing facility shall, as a condition of maintaining such permit, file with such commission supplemental information (including the statement described in the preceding sentence) concerning any new or additional owners, principals, officers, directors, or partners of such firm, corporation, or partnership, as the case may be, or any new or additional employees thereof who will actually work at such racing facility.

A commission shall be entitled to charge fees for permits according to such schedule as it shall adopt from time to time, and in addition to the fee that it may charge a firm, corporation, or partnership having employees at a racing facility under its jurisdiction, it may charge a separate fee for each individual employee of such firm, corporation, or partnership working at such racing facility; provided, however, that (1) the permit fee for any one firm, corporation, or partnership shall not exceed $1,000.00 in any period of one year and (2) the permit fee for any individual shall not exceed $50.00 in any period of one year, regardless of whether such individual is self-employed or is employed by a firm, corporation, or partnership also paying a permit fee.
