BILL NUMBER:S7312

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in
relation to sharing gross revenues at stadiums, arenas or other places
of entertainment

PURPOSE OF THE BILL: To allow greater flexibility in agreements
between concession operators and team owners in relation to the
sharing of gross revenues.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 Amends the alcohol beverage control law to make clear that
any person who holds a license to serve alcoholic beverages on premise
for a stadium of arena that has a capacity of 5,000 people or more may
share revenue with the owner or operator of the premises.

Section 2 Sets' forth the effective date

JUSTIFICATION: On a nationwide basis, most sport and entertainment
venues which are built on public land are controlled by an entity
other than the actual holder of the license to sell alcoholic
beverages at the facility. Under current New York law, the holder of
the liquor license is precluded from sharing proceeds from the sale of
alcoholic beverages with a person or entity not named on the license.
New York is one of only two states who maintain this prohibition and
it is long past time that this roadblock to building better business
to business relationships in the sports and entertainment sector was
eliminated.

The proposed bill deals only with "premises operating as a stadium,
arena or place of entertainment having a permanent seating capacity in
excess of five thousand persons." The bill is further limited to
facilities located "on real property owned by the State of New York or
a political subdivision thereof."

This proposal gives the authority the ability to issue licenses where
the holder of the license will be authorized to share gross revenues
from the sale of alcoholic beverages with the owner or operator of the
premises. This will make New York law consistent with nationwide
business practices for sport and entertainment venues.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate
