Senator Johnson’s Temporary Retail Permit Legislation Signed into Law

Senator Craig M. Johnson, (D-Nassau), scored a victory for small businesses on Long Island and across New York State when his legislation to enact a system to counteract the infamous liquor license backlog at the State Liquor Authority was signed into law.

The measure, (S.6231C), establishes a one-year pilot program to create a temporary retail permit system that will help businesses get up and running without being affected by the notoriously long wait.

While crafting this legislation, Senator Johnson heard horror stories from owners of gas stations, restaurants, grocery stores, and other businesses who have been hurt by the inability to serve and sell alcohol while the SLA spent months processing their permit applications.

Statement by Senator Craig M. Johnson, (D-Nassau):

"I am among those who have a strong emotional reaction to the mosque controversy and am opposed to its construction in the shadow of Ground Zero. There is no dispute that the mosque's developers have a constitutional right to build there, but that doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. That's why I support efforts by the Governor, Arch Bishop Dolan and others to find a alternative site that is not in close proximity to where more than 3,000 Long Islanders, New Yorkers, and Americans of all faiths were killed."
