 AN ACT to amend the alcoholic  beverage  control  law,  in  relation  to
   enacting  the "beverage industry jobs act" relating to the shipment of
   alcoholic beverages into the state
   Section  1.  This act shall be known and may be cited as the "beverage
 industry jobs act".
   § 2. Legislative purpose. The legislature finds and declares that  the
 proper  regulation and control of the manufacture, sale and distribution
 of alcoholic beverages is in the best interest of the  citizens  of  New
 York  state.  The legislature also believes it is in the interest of the
 citizens of New York state to promote and support the state's  wine  and
 craft  spirits  industry,  a  growing industry that is helping to revive
 local economies in many areas of the state.  Helping  the  producers  of
 alcoholic  beverages  while ensuring that all taxes are properly paid on
 all wine and liquor sales in the state will increase  economic  activity
 in  the  city  and state, ensure that jobs that have left the state as a
 result of the lack of such a law will  return  to  the  state  and  will
 increase  tax  revenue  for the state that is currently going unpaid and
   § 3. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 1 of section 102  of  the  alcoholic
 beverage  control law, as amended by chapter 210 of the laws of 2005, is
 amended and a new paragraph (a-1) is added to read as follows:
   (a) Except as provided in section seventy-nine-c of this  chapter,  no
 alcoholic  beverages  shall  be  shipped  into the state unless the same
 shall be consigned to a person duly licensed  hereunder  to  traffic  in
