BILL NUMBER:S5358

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the alcoholic beverage control law and the state finance law,
in relation to establishing the wine industry and liquor store
development act; and to repeal certain provisions of the alcoholic
beverage control law relating thereto

PURPOSE OF BILL:
This bill expands authorizations
under the alcoholic beverage control law to provide opportunities
for vendors to expand their business.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one of the bill provides that this act shall be known as the
"wine industry and liquor store development act".

Section two of the bill provides for, in the annual report from the
authority to the Legislature and the Governor, information related to
the length of time required for licensure and renewals applied to
pursuant to subdivision two-c of section sixty-one of this chapter
and sections sixty four, seventy-six, seventy-six-a, seventy-six-c,
seventy-six-d and seventy six-f of this chapter.

Section three of the bill provides the expanded opportunity for liquor
stores to sell items complimentary to their business, allows such
stores to install ATM machines on the premises, provides for multiple
licenses and authorizes liquor stores occupying less than 3,000
square feet to sell to retail establishments licensed for consumption
on the premises.

Section four of the bill authorizes liquor stores occupying less than
3,000 square feet to sell to retail establishments licensed for
consumption off the premises.

Section five of the bill provides for licensure of grocery stores and
drug stores to sell wine for consumption off the premises, provides
further opportunities for wine tastings, institutes a franchise fee
and annual fee structure for such licensure and provides that any
person licensed to sell wine may purchase any wine from a person
licensed under this section or sections sixty-three or seventy-nine
of this chapter.

Section six of the bill provides for an annual fee for the licensure
of grocery or drug stores to sell wine and provides for the
appropriation and
allocation of funds for the New York wine marketing program and
farmland protection programs.

Section seven of the bill amends the state finance law by adding a new
section 97-kkkk, which provides for the New York wine industry
marketing and promotion account.

Section eight of the bill provides for temporary permits to sell as
licensed in order for those premises awaiting licensure and renewals
may continue to do business uninterrupted by the extended licensure
process

Section nine of the bill provides that any person under eighteen years
of age may handle and deliver the wine and that any person under
eighteen years of age may record and receive payment for wine under
the supervision of a person who is eighteen years of age or older.

Section ten of the bill provides that proof of age must be provided at
every sale for alcoholic beverages and provides the valid proof.

Section eleven of the bill provides for a "credit period" to mean a
period beginning on the date alcoholic beverages are delivered and
ending sixty days thereafter for those licensed under section
sixty-three of this chapter.

Section twelve of the bill amends the circumstances in which a
retailer can be placed on the statewide default list.

Section thirteen of the bill provides for the sale of mixed cases of
wine for resale.

Section fourteen, fifteen and sixteen of the bill remove advertising
restrictions within the licensed premises.

Section seventeen of the bill provides for expanded hours for the
operation of a liquor store and expands the retailer's (liquor store)
ability to conduct business other than selling wine or liquor.

Section eighteen of the bill provides for cooperative agreements so
that smaller liquor stores may agree to jointly purchase larger, more
cost effective, quantities than would be possible without cooperative
agreements.

Section twenty of this bill provides an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Wine Industry and Liquor Store Development Act is a comprehensive
piece of legislation that provides economic stimulus to industries
that are at the core of the New York economy. The bill provides
fairness and opportunity for a New York wine and grape industry;
furthermore, it allows the small mom and pop liquor and wine stores
to compete and thrive in a new economy. The New York wine and grape
industry, once the second highest producer of wine in the country,
has fallen from its prominence and will continue to do so without
increased opportunities. The New York wine and grape industry

stretches across the,entire state and provides opportunity in several
sectors of the economy, including; agriculture, manufacturing and
tourism. The diverse economic and geographic reach of the industry
primes the New York wine and
grape industry to generate economic benefit when provided with
opportunity for expansion. In addition, this bill provides
significant opportunity for liquor stores by repealing antiquated
statues that presently prevent them from expanding their businesses.
For many small businesses across the State, opportunities to expand
and policies that provide fairness are essential.
This legislation revives the New York wine and grape industry and will
allow it to flourish.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Enactment of this bill would provide approximately $430 million in
2011-12 through various franchise fees, excise taxes, sales taxes and
license fees and $62-70 million each year thereafter.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately except for grocery and drug
stores which shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after
it shall have become law.
