BILL NUMBER:S6341A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to
authorizing the state liquor authority to issue company permits for
certain vehicles over sixty-five thousand pounds

PURPOSE:
To expand the number of alcoholic beverage transportation permits to
wholesalers and manufacturers.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section ninety-four of the alcohol beverage control law is amended by
adding a new subdivision 2-b to provide for the issuance to licensed
wholesalers and manufacturers company permits that allow vehicles over
sixty-five thousand pounds hired or contracted by such licensee to
transport alcoholic beverages with appropriate documentation as required
listing delivery time and date of destination.

JUSTIFICATION:
Current transportations permits issued under the Alcohol Beverage
Control have limited the number of carriers to transport large quanti-
ties of alcoholic beverages from New York State breweries and manufac-
turers. These limitations have increased the cost of hauling to these
breweries and manufacturers by limiting competition and disadvantage
many local haulers that find obtaining a permit cost prohibitive. This
legislation would provide licensed brewers and wholesalers the ability
to provide a company permit to haulers with full truckloads. The use of
company permits will provide lower hauling costs for state brewers and
wholesalers making their products more competitive. Finally, company
permits will provide environmental benefits by lowering the incidence of
empty trucks leaving breweries and manufacturing sites saving fuel costs
to these haulers and lowering carbon emissions in the state.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
