  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.    Subdivision  4  of  section  404 of the agriculture and
markets law, as added by chapter 259 of the laws of 2000, is amended  to
read as follows:
  4.   Before any license shall be suspended or revoked, the commission-
er, or any hearing officer he or she may designate, shall hold  a  hear-
ing, upon due notice to the licensee, in accordance with any regulations
promulgated  by the department and in accordance with articles three and
four of the state administrative procedure act.   WHERE A  LICENSEE  HAS
FAILED EITHER THREE CONSECUTIVE INSPECTIONS PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION, OR
THREE  INSPECTIONS  IN  A  THREE YEAR PERIOD PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION, A
HEARING SHALL BE HELD TO CONSIDER WHETHER SUSPENSION  OR  REVOCATION  OF
THE  LICENSE  IS WARRANTED.   NOTHING IN THIS SECTION SHALL PROHIBIT THE
COMMISSIONER FROM TAKING  ADDITIONAL  ACTIONS  REGARDING  SUCH  LICENSES
PRIOR  TO  FAILURE BY A LICENSEE OF EITHER THREE CONSECUTIVE INSPECTIONS
OR THREE INSPECTIONS IN A THREE YEAR PERIOD.
  S 2.  This act shall take effect on  the  one  hundred  twentieth  day
after  it  shall  have  become  a law; provided, however, that effective
immediately, the addition, amendment and/or repeal of any rule or  regu-
lation  necessary  for  the  implementation of this act on its effective
date are authorized to be made on or before such effective date.
