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

  Section 1. Subdivisions 2 and 4 of section 500 of the agriculture  and
markets  law,  as  amended  by section 8 of part I1 of chapter 62 of the
laws of 2003, are amended to read as follows:
  2. Each retail food store shall post a copy of the date and results of
its most recent sanitary inspection by the department in  a  conspicuous
location  near  each public entrance, as prescribed by the commissioner.
Such copies shall also be made available to  the  public  upon  request.
ANY  RETAIL STORE THAT VIOLATES THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SUBDIVISION SHALL
BE SUBJECT TO A PENALTY OF UP TO FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR  EACH  DAY  OF
VIOLATION.
  4.  The  department shall inspect each retail food store at least once
in every twelve month period.  Any  store  that  fails  two  consecutive
inspections  shall  be inspected at least once in every six month period
until it has passed two consecutive inspections. In  the  event  that  a
retail  food  store  fails three consecutive inspections, the department
[may, in its discretion,] SHALL order such establishment  to  cease  all
retail  operation  until  it  passes inspection or suspend or revoke any
license issued to such establishment pursuant  to  article  twenty-C  of
this chapter.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after
it  shall  have  become a law. Effective immediately the commissioner of
agriculture and markets is authorized  to  promulgate  rules  and  regu-
lations  necessary to implement the provisions of this act on its effec-
tive date.
