BILL NUMBER:S5248

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in
relation to delivery or transport of wine pursuant to a farm winery
license

PURPOSE:

To provide flexibility and efficiency to farm wineries by permitting
farm winery employees to deliver and transport wine in their own
vehicles.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends subdivision 6 of section 76-a of the
alcoholic beverage control law to permit farm winery employees to
deliver wine using their own vehicles.

Section 2 of the bill is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

Farm wineries are becoming more prominent in New York State. These
popular operations are visited regularly by New Yorkers and tourists,
and are an emerging industry providing jobs and economic development
opportunities across the state.

Like other businesses, farm wineries can benefit from greater
flexibility in its operations. In this growing industry, circumstances
can arise in which operational efficiency and customer satisfaction
would be improved if farm winery employees were permitted to deliver
wine using his or her own vehicle. For example, in some circumstances,
a valued customer may reside in an area that is on-the-way home for a
farm winery employee. In these situations, allowing the employee to
deliver the wine to a customer in his or her own vehicle will provide
flexibility and improve efficiency at the farm winery.

This type of arrangement will also reduce costs for a farm winery -
which is always a concern for businesses that are trying to grow.
Without this legislation, these valued employees would be required to
obtain certain permits or licenses to deliver wine in their own
vehicles. The cost of these permits or licenses can quickly
accumulate.

By allowing farm winery employees to deliver wine in their own
vehicles, farm wineries will reduce costs, obtain operational
flexibility and improve efficiency. These elements are crucial for the
success of growing business and creating jobs - especially in upstate
New York.
