REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Ohio Department of Agriculture respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to increase appropriation authority in the amount of $400,000 in fund 6520, ALI 700634 (Animal & Consumer Analytical Fund) in FY 2018 and FY 2019 for the Analytical Toxicology Laboratory.  
  The Analytical Toxicology Lab provides testing of horses for prohibited substances as required by the Ohio State Racing Commission. Samples are submitted from the Ohio's 7 commercial race tracks and more than 60 county fairs with pari-mutuel wagering. In 2018 and 2019, ATL will have a revenue increase of $400,000 per year, due to increase in price of fee-per-service testing negotiated in contract dated 10/01/17. The ATL testing must meet the minimum performance standards required by the Racing Medication Testing Consortium's (RMTC) National Uniform Medication Program, and maintaining ATL's accreditation per ISO 17025 and RMTC standards. The use of highly sensitive analytical instruments is needed to achieve the minimum detection levels dictated by these program requirements.
