applications by certified public accountants of
other states for reciprocal certificates, and enrolls
certified public accountants and registered public

Examinations are held in May and November
of each year. Certificates are issued by the Board
to those persons who pass the examinations or
whose applications for reciprocal certificates are
approved. "The Board may for specified causes re-

"The Maryland Racing Commission, established
by Chapter 273, Acts of 1920, and reorganized by
Chapter 831, Acts of 1959, was further
restructured by Chapter 728, Acts of 1977. As
presently constituted, the Commission is com-
posed of ten members appointed by the Governor
with the advice and consent of the Senate for five-
year staggered terms. The ten members comprise
two boards, the Harness Racing Board and the
"Thoroughbred Racing Board. No more than four
members of either board may belong to the same
political party. Each Board has exclusive jurisdic-
tion over all rules, regulations, allocation of rac-
ing dates, and all other matters relating to the
powers and duties granted to them by the Act.
The two Boards may meet jointly concerning
matters affecting all racing in the State. The Sec-
retary of Licensing and Regulation resolves any
question of jurisdiction that may arise between
the two Boards. The Boards license all persons,
associations, or corporations that hold any racing
meeting within the State where horseracing is per-
mitted for any stake, purse, or reward. The
Boards make all regulations necessary to govern
the races. They may also regulate the size of the
purse, the price of admission, or the charge made
for any article or service sold at the meets.
