adding a new subdivision 7 authorizing a holder of a seven day license
to sell liquor at retail for off-premise consumption to sell liquor
and/or wine to a person licensed to sell liquor and/or wine at retail
consumption on the premises.

Section three amends subdivisions 3-a and 3-b of section 102 of the
alcoholic beverage control law as amended by chapter 458 of the laws
