 AN  ACT  in relation to certain credits for any future application for a
   license to sell alcohol at retail  for  on-premises  consumption;  and
   providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the  contra-
 ry,  the  state liquor authority shall provide, upon application, a one-
 time credit to any covered entity to be used towards any future applica-
 tion  for  a  license  to  sell  alcohol  at  retail   for   on-premises
 consumption.  Such credit shall be in the amount that such covered enti-
 ty  paid  in fees solely for retail licenses to sell alcohol on-premises
 in calendar year two thousand twenty.  Such one-time credit  shall  only
 be  authorized  to apply to license fees related to renewals or applica-
 tions to sell alcoholic beverages in the same locations  for  which  the
 covered  entity obtained a retail license for on-premises consumption in
 calendar year two thousand  twenty.    For  purposes  of  this  section,
 "covered  entity"  shall  mean  any sports or cultural organization that
 held more than one license to sell alcohol  at  retail  for  on-premises
 consumption in calendar year two thousand twenty.  Such credits shall be
 given  at  no cost to a covered entity and no late fees shall be charged
 to a covered entity for such credit; however, if requested by the  state
 liquor  authority, such covered entity shall still be required to submit
 any forms or information to the state liquor authority to  receive  such
 credit.  However,  no credit shall be issued or applied pursuant to this
 section if such covered entity is able to claim a credit for  such  fees
 pursuant to any other applicable provision of law.
   §  2.  This  act shall take effect immediately and shall expire and be
 deemed repealed one year after such effective date.
