BILL NUMBER: S2372 TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to the distances of certain establishments from a school, church, synagogue or other place of worship; and to repeal certain provisions of such law relating thereto PURPOSE : The subject bill amends various sections of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law to increase the distance from 200 to 500 feet that liquor establishments must be from any school, church, synagogue or other place of worship. The bill also makes it clear that the building occupied by such school, church, synagogue or other place of worship need not be the only entity occupying said building. JUSTIFICATION : Currently, more and more liquor licenses are being granted which border on our schools, churches and synagogues causing disruption to them. Moreover, many schools or places of worship are in buildings with multiple uses. As the current law now stands such schools or places of worship could have a bar right next to them and the 200 foot barrier wouldn't apply since the building is not occupied exclusively as a school or place of worship. The subject bill would correct this oversight.
