BILL NUMBER:S5240

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to temporary
beer and wine permits

PURPOSE:
This bill would allow wine manufacturers who produce not more
than 150,000 gallons of wine annually to participate and sell wine at
special events for a permit fee of $26.

Section 97 of the Alcohol and Beverage Law, as amended by chapter 183
of the laws of 2008 is amended by adding a new subdivision 4.

Section 1: Authorizes the State Liquor Authority to issue a permit to
the holder of any license to manufacture wine to sell wine at outdoor

these events. This bill would address a problem in the alcohol and
beverage law, in order to allow companies that produce 150,000
gallons or less of wine each year to participate in special events
with a temporary for a fee of $26.
