BILL NUMBER:S2445 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to requiring the revocation of the license or permit of any holder which has been found on three or more occasions to have committed violations and prohibiting the issuance of any license or permit, for not less than three years, after the revocation thereof; and to amend the real property law, in relation to providing for the filing by the state liquor authority of such revocation order PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to institute a "three strikes you are out" standard to revoke any license issued pursuant to the alcoholic beverage control law (ABC) including licenses to sell alcoholic beverages for on or off premises consumption. Under current law, there is no bright line standard to automatically revoke a license to sell alcoholic beverages for a premises in which it has been the scene of multiple crimes that seriously endanger the public health, safety or general welfare. This bill will give regulators a tool that they can use to close down establishments that have witnessed three or more violent crimes that have either endangered the patrons of such establishment or the surrounding community.
