BILL NUMBER:S39

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the public health law, in relation to the establishment of a
letter grading system to classify inspection results for entertainment
venue
food service establishments

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Directs commissioner of health to establish a uniform letter grading
system to classify results inspections of entertainment venue food
service establishments.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This bill requires the establishment of a system for grading the
inspection results of food service establishments located within or
otherwise owned operated or controlled by places of entertainment,
including privately or publicly owned and operated facilities such as
a theatre, stadium, arena, race-track, museum, amusement park, or
other place where performances, concerts, exhibits, athletic games or
contests are held for which a donation is recommended or required or
an entry fee is charged to post the letter grade representing the
result of the most recent health inspection.

Due process safeguards are part of this bill. If a letter grade of" A"
is not received, the establishment will receive the inspection
findings, and can request a re-inspection that will occur within 7 to
21 days. After the re-inspection, a letter grade will again be
assigned. if the reinspection, that finding can be appealed and a
review shall occur within 30 days.

This system shall not apply to:

- premises licensed for on-premise consumption of alcoholic beverages
pursuant to the alcoholic beverage control law when less than ten
percent of the gross sales of such establishment is derived from the
retail sale of food for on-premises consumption; or

- food service establishments that do not engage in the retail sale of
food for on-premises or off premises consumption from such
establishment.

JUSTIFICATION:
A recent report by ESPN "Outside the Lines" highlighted findings of
health department inspection reports for food and beverage outlets at
all 107 North American arenas and stadiums that were home to MLB,
NFL, NBA and NHL teams in 2009. From the 107 venues, 30 (28 percent)
had been cited for at least one "critical" or "major" health
violation. A "critical" or "major" health violation is one that poses
a risk for food borne illnesses that can cause an ailment or in
extreme cases possible fatalities.

The New York State Department of Health is responsible for the
inspection of public places where food is prepared, sold or served in


New York. Local health department inspectors conduct surprise
inspections to check compliance with state and local laws.

A uniform statewide system of inspection and grading entertainment
venue food service establishments will provide consumers an easy way
to decide if they wish to eat from a particular food establishment.
Such system will provide encouragement to keep food establishments
sanitary.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2011-12: S.4840-A
2010: S.8458

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect one year after it shall have become a law.
Provided, however, that effective immediately, any rules and
regulations necessary to implement the provisions of this act on its
effective date are authorized and directed to be completed on or
before such date.
