BILL NUMBER:S6770

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize certain premises to sell liquor

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
This bill would allow the business establishment The Broadalbin Hotel
to obtain a liquor license.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This bill amends the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law, allowing issuance
of a retail license for on-premises consumption of alcohol for a
premises within 200 feet of a place of worship, provided that the
purpose of such premises is for the sale and consumption of food or
beverage, and such premises is within the boundaries of the Village
of Broadalbin as directed therein.

JUSTIFICATION:
While the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law prohibits the sale for
on-premises consumption of alcohol at any location within 200 feet of
a place of worship, exceptions have been made for certain
establishments that do not pose problems for the place of worship, or
the surrounding neighborhood. This bill would exempt the Broadalbin
Hotel in the Village of Broadalbin from this provision of law thereby
allowing sale and consumption of alcohol in the restaurant. The
Broadalbin Hotel has existed since the late 1800's. For most of that
time they were authorized to sell alcohol, but unfortunately the
license lapsed around the time the establishment was being sold to a
new owner.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
