BILL NUMBER:S2356 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to providing villages the local option to prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages PURPOSE: Provides villages with the local option to make unlawful the sale of alcoholic beverages within such villages. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The alcohol beverage control law is amended by adding a new section 141-a. This bill amends section 140 of the alcoholic beverage control law, as amended by chapter 810 of the laws of 1981. It also amends section 143 and subdivision 1 of section 147 of the alcoholic beverage control law. JUSTIFICATION: Cities and towns have the right to make decisions on the sale of alcoholic beverages in their areas. These problems can include crowds, noise pollution, and traffic congestion, which can worsen during the summer months and can create serious effects on surrounding areas. Many times these problems are associated with the sale of alcohol. In villages, these problems are more obvious because of the small size of the area. Villages, however, do not have the authority to make changes regarding these problems. Villages do not have the same authority regarding local decisions that cities and towns have. This legislation would provide local option authority to villages in the same manner it is now provided to towns and cities.
