BILL NUMBER:S1880B

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the general business law,
in relation to establishing
penalties for licensed barbers
who sell alcohol to persons under the age of
twenty-one years

PURPOSE:
The purpose of this bill is to deter businesses from selling alcohols
to persons under 21 years of age. Penalties associated with selling
alcohol to minors and selling alcohol without a license have been
increased to address this problem.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1: Adds a new subdivision (10) to section 441(a} of the
general business law that expands the grounds for revocation of a
barber's license to include selling, giving, or delivering alcohol to
a person under 21 years of age.

Section 2: Amends subdivision 1 of section 130 of the alcoholic
beverage control law to increase penalties for those who manufacture
or sell alcoholic beverages without having the appropriate license,
or with a revoked or suspended license.

Section 3: Sets the effective date 120 days after it shall become law.

JUSTIFICATION:
Recent investigations have found that several barbershops, bodegas and
other stores are selling illegal and potent alcoholic beverages to
minors as young as 14. These businesses, which do not have the
appropriate license to sell alcohol, mix hard alcohol with very
sugary, colorful drinks and candy in an attempt to market the drink
to minors. The increased penalties proposed in this bill will deter
the unlicensed selling of alcohol to minors.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This is a new bill.

CURRENT LAW:
Section 441(a) of the general business law does not list selling alcohol
to those under 21 years of age as grounds for revocation of a barber
shop license. Section 130 currently makes it a misdemeanor to sell
alcoholic beverages without the appropriate license and has
increasing penalties for 1st, 2nd, and subsequent convictions.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This bill would be effective 120 days after passage.
