BILL NUMBER:S5240B

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.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
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 temporary
permit to the holder of any license to manufacture wine to sell wine
at outdoor or indoor events and gatherings, provided that such
manufacturer produces less than 150,000 gallons of wine annually. The
permit fee would be $26.

STATEMENT IN SUPPORT:
Festivals, Fairs and other special events are important tourist
attractions and economic development engines around New York State.
The ability of a wine manufacturer to host, sponsor or participate in
such events and to sell wine, is also important in that it promotes
the Wine industry and enhances the atmosphere of 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 permit
for a fee of $26.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This bill would take effect immediately.
