BILL NUMBER:S354 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to terms of sale of alcoholic beverages PURPOSE: This bill will provide manufacturers and wholesalers greater flexibility in developing payment plans with retailers. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Amends paragraph a of subdivision 1 of section 101-aa of the alcoholic beverage control law to define credit period as a period beginning on the date alcoholic beverages are delivered and ending sixty days thereafter. EXISTING LAW: Currently, credit period is defined as a period beginning on the date alcoholic beverages are delivered and ending thirty days thereafter. JUSTIFICATION: The current thirty-day credit period that manufacturers and wholesalers are required to limit retailers to is onerously short. A sixty-day credit period is more appropriate.
