KLEIN -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Investigations and Govern- ment Operations AN ACT to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to the shipment of alcoholic beverages into the state THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative purpose. The legislature finds and declares that the proper regulation and control of the manufacture, sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages is in the best interest of the citi- zens of New York state. In furtherance of this policy the legislature finds that requiring alcoholic beverage products to be maintained in a warehouse owned or leased by a licensed New York state wholesaler for twenty-four hours will allow the state liquor authority and the New York state department of taxation and finance to verify the legality of such product and the proper payment of taxes on such product. S 2. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 1 of section 102 of the alcoholic beverage control law, as amended by chapter 210 of the laws of 2005, is amended to read as follows: (a) Except as provided in section seventy-nine-c of this chapter, no alcoholic beverages shall be shipped into the state unless the same shall be consigned to a person duly licensed hereunder to traffic in alcoholic beverages.

SUCH INVENTORY SHALL BE DEEMED TO INCLUDE ONLY ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES WHICH SHALL HAVE BEEN STORED IN SUCH PREMISES OR WAREHOUSE FOR AT LEAST A PERIOD OF TWENTY-FOUR CONTINUOUS HOURS. This prohibition shall apply to all shipments of alco- holic beverages into New York state and includes importation or distrib- ution for commercial purposes, for personal use, or otherwise, and irre- EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
