BILL NUMBER: S304

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to
providing villages the local option to prohibit the sale of alcoholic
beverages


PURPOSE :
Provides villages with the local option to make unlawful the sale of
alcoholic beverages within such villages.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
The alcohol beverage control law is amended by adding a new section
141-a. This bill amends section 140 of the alcoholic beverage control
law, as amended by chapter 810 of the laws of 1981. It also amends
section(s) 143, 146, and subdivision 1 of section 147 of the alcoholic
beverage control law.

JUSTIFICATION :
Cities and towns have the right to make decisions on the sale of
alcoholic beverages in their areas. These problems can include crowds,
noise pollution, and traffic congestion, which can worsen during the
summer months and can create serious effects on surrounding areas.
Many times these problems are associated with the sale of alcohol. In
villages, these problems are more obvious because of the small size of
the area. Villages, however, do not have the authority to make changes
regarding these problems. Villages do not have the same authority
regarding local decisions that cities and towns have. This legislation
would provide local option authority to villages in the same manner it
is now provided to towns and cities. This legislation would help
villages reduce crowds, noise pollution, and traffic congestion they
face during the summer.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
2007-08, S.665; 2005-06, S.1366, 2003-04, S.718; 2001-02; S.1884;
1999-00, S.1616; 1997-98, S.6520.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after it shall have
become a law.
