  the Committee on Investigations and Government Operations

AN ACT to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, the  penal  law  and
  the  vehicle  and  traffic  law,  in relation to authorizing courts to
  suspend a driver's license where the holder fails to appear before the
  court, pay a fine, complete an alcohol awareness program  or  complete
  community service within the period of time established by such court

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivision 3 of section 65-c  of  the  alcoholic  beverage
control  law,  as amended by chapter 137 of the laws of 2001, is amended
to read as follows:
  3. Any person who unlawfully  possesses  an  alcoholic  beverage  with
intent  to consume may be summoned before and examined by a court having
jurisdiction of that charge; provided, however, that  nothing  contained
herein shall authorize, or be construed to authorize, a peace officer as
defined  in  subdivision  thirty-three  of  section 1.20 of the criminal
procedure law or a police officer as defined in subdivision  thirty-four
of  section 1.20 of such law to arrest a person who unlawfully possesses
an alcoholic beverage with intent to consume. If a determination is made
sustaining such charge the court may impose a fine not  exceeding  fifty
dollars  and/or  completion  of an alcohol awareness program established
pursuant to section 19.25 of the mental hygiene law and/or an  appropri-
ate amount of community service not to exceed thirty hours.  IN ADDITION
TO  ANY FINE, ALCOHOL AWARENESS PROGRAM AND/OR COMMUNITY SERVICE IMPOSED
BY THE COURT PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION, THE COURT MAY SUSPEND  THE  DRIV-
ER'S  LICENSE  OF ANY PERSON WHO FAILS TO APPEAR BEFORE THE COURT, PAY A
FINE, COMPLETE  AN  ALCOHOL  AWARENESS  PROGRAM  OR  COMPLETE  COMMUNITY
SERVICE  PURSUANT  TO THIS SECTION WITHIN THE PERIOD OF TIME ESTABLISHED
BY SUCH COURT. SUCH SUSPENSION SHALL BE MADE UPON NOTICE TO SUCH  PERSON
