AN ACT to amend the agriculture and  markets  law,  in  relation  to  an
  exemption  from  the  small food processing licensing requirements for
  pickling

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

  Section  1.  Section  251-z-4  of  the agriculture and markets law, as
added by chapter 863 of the laws of 1972, is amended to read as follows:
  S 251-z-4. Exemptions. In addition  to  the  exemptions  specified  in
subdivision  three  of  section  two  hundred  fifty-one-z-two  OF  THIS
ARTICLE, the commissioner [may] SHALL, if he OR SHE determines that  the
protection of the consumers of the state as a whole will not be impaired
by  such  action,  provide by regulation for exemption from licensing of
small food processing establishments, FOR  THE  PROCESSING  OF  FOOD  BY
MEANS INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PICKLING, when he OR SHE finds that
such  exemptions  would  avoid  unnecessary regulation and assist in the
administration of this article without  impairing  its  purposes.  Regu-
lations  defining  such  exemptions may classify exempted establishments
with respect to the volume and types of food handled, the types of proc-
essing involved, or with respect to  any  other  factor  or  combination
thereof  which  bear a reasonable relation to the purposes of this arti-
cle. Such exemptions may be conditioned upon  requirements  relating  to
sanitation,  record  keeping  and  reporting  as  the  commissioner  may
require.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after
it shall have become a law, provided, however, that effective immediate-
ly, the addition, amendment and/or repeal of any  rules  or  regulations
necessary  for the implementation of this act on its effective date, are
authorized and directed to be made  and  completed  on  or  before  such
effective date.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD09669-02-3
