AN  ACT  to  amend  the  alcoholic  beverage control law, in relation to
  including the Sons of the American  Legion  and  the  American  Legion
  Auxiliary as a club


  Section 1. Subdivision 9  of  section  3  of  the  alcoholic  beverage
control  law,  as amended by chapter 575 of the laws of 2005, is amended
to read as follows:
  9. "Club" shall mean an organization of persons incorporated  pursuant
to  the  provisions of the not-for-profit corporation law or the benevo-
lent orders law, which is the owner, lessee or occupant  of  a  building
used  exclusively for club purposes, and which does not traffic in alco-
holic beverages for profit and is operated solely  for  a  recreational,
social, patriotic, political, benevolent or athletic purpose but not for
pecuniary  gain;  except that where such club is located in an office or
business building, or state armory, it may be licensed as such  provided
it  otherwise  qualifies as a "club" within the meaning of this subdivi-
sion. A "luncheon club" shall mean a club which is  open  only  on  week
days  during  the  hours between eleven o'clock in the morning and three
o'clock in the afternoon. A "member" of a club shall mean a  person  who
whether  a  charter  member or admitted in agreement with the by-laws of
the club, has become a bona fide member thereof, who  maintains  his  or
her  membership  by the payment of his or her annual dues in a bona fide
manner in accordance with the by-laws and  whose  name  and  address  is
entered  on the list of members; or in the case of a veterans club where
a person has in his or her possession an identification card  indicating
his  or her membership in the national veterans' organization with which
the club at which he or she is present is affiliated. For  the  purposes
of  this section a veterans club shall include but not be limited to the
Grand Army of the Republic, the United Spanish War Veterans, the  Veter-
ans of Foreign Wars, the Jewish War Veterans of the United States, Inc.,
