TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 396 of the laws of 2010 amending the alcoholic beverage control law relating to liquidator's permits and temporary retail permits, in relation to the effectiveness of certain provisions thereof
Purpose of the Bill:
This bill would extend for five years Alcoholic Beverage Control Law (ABCL) § 97-a that allows the State Liquor Authority (Authority) to issue temporary permits to certain retail applicants while they await a full review of their license applications.
Summary of Provisions:
Section 1 of the bill would extend until October 12, 2018 the sunset provision for ABCL § 97-a(1)(b) currently set to sunset October 12, 2013.
Section 2 of the bill would make the amendment effective immediately.
ABCL § 97-a(1)(b) allows the Authority to issue temporary retail permits to applicants for locations that are not currently licensed. The provision only applies to locations outside of the City of New York and will expire on October 12, 2013.
Prior Legislative History:
One-year extenders were passed last year (L 2012, c. 141), as well as in 2011 (L. 2011, c. 442)
Statement in Support:
Extending this provision for five years will allow the Authority to continue to issue temporary retail permits to applicants outside of New York City who would otherwise be ineligible for such permits Applicants for liquor licenses for grocery stores, restaurants, bars, hotels, and catering establishments are eligible for this permit. With these permits, applicants can open their businesses while they await a full review of their applications and issuance of their licenses In most instances, the permit is issued to the applicant within one week of receipt of the application. Allowing this quick startup for businesses has benefited over 4,300 applicants and their thousands of employees. The Authority would retain its power to summarily suspend or cancel the permits for good cause
The act would take effect immediately.
