An auditor general’s report out Thursday found the Department of Business and Professional Regulation did not properly apply its rules regarding oversight of pari-mutuels.
The report found that beginning on July 1, 2009, DBPR’s Division of Pari-mutuel Wagering issued three-year occupational licenses for slot machines at rates of $100 for individuals and $2,000 businesses, instead of at rates of $150 and $3,000, respectively, as their rules stipulate. The discrepancy cost the state $105,300, according to the audit. The division filed to change the rule to the lower rates in October 2010, but it has not been implemented.
