BILL NUMBER:S6974

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 396 of the laws of 2010
amending the alcoholic beverage control law relating to liquidator's
permits and temporary retail permits, in relation to the effectiveness
of certain provisions thereof

Purpose of the Bill:

This bill would extend by one year the sunset for the provision in

Section 97-a of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law ("ABCL") that
allows the State Liquor Authority ("Authority") to issue temporary
permits to certain retail applicants while they await a full review of
their license applications.

Summary of provisions:

Section 1 of the bill would amend Chapter 396 of the Laws of 2010, to
extend by one year the sunset provision for ABCL § 97-a(1)(b)
currently set to expire on October 12, 2014.

ABCL § 97-a allows the Authority to issue temporary permits to
applicants for retail licenses. These permits allow applicants to
operate while the application is pending. The permits can only be
issued to applicants who buy a business that is currently licensed.

Chapter 396 of the Laws of 2010 added a provision, § 97-a(1)(b), that
allows the Authority to issue temporary permits to certain other
retail applicants for locations that are not currently licensed. The
provision only applies to locations outside of the City of New York.

Section 2 of the bill would make the amendment effective immediately.

Existing law:

The current law will expire on October 12, 2014.

Legislative History:

One year extenders have been passed every year since 2010. (Chapter
122 of the Laws of 2013, Chapter 141 of the Laws of 2012, and Chapter
442 of the Laws of 2011).

Statement in support:

Extension of this amendment will allow the Authority to continue to
issue temporary retail permits to applicants outside of New York City
who would otherwise be ineligible for such permits. With these
permits, applicants can open their businesses while they await a full
review of their applications and issuance of their licenses. The
Authority would retain its power to summarily suspend or cancel the
permits for good cause.

Budget implications:

None.


Local impact:

None.

Effective Date:

This bill would take effect immediately.
