Memo

BILL NUMBER:S5240B

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to temporary beer and wine permits

PURPOSE: This bill would allow wine manufacturers who produce not more than 150,000 gallons of wine annually to participate and sell wine at special events for a permit fee of $26.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 97 of the Alcohol and Beverage Law, as amended by chapter 183 of the laws of 2008 is amended by adding a new subdivision 4.

Section 1: Authorizes the State Liquor Authority to issue a temporary permit to the holder of any license to manufacture wine to sell wine at outdoor or indoor events and gatherings, provided that such manufacturer produces less than 150,000 gallons of wine annually. The permit fee would be $26.

STATEMENT IN SUPPORT: Festivals, Fairs and other special events are important tourist attractions and economic development engines around New York State. The ability of a wine manufacturer to host, sponsor or participate in such events and to sell wine, is also important in that it promotes the Wine industry and enhances the atmosphere of these events. This bill would address a problem in the alcohol and beverage law, in order to allow companies that produce 150,000 gallons or less of wine each year to participate in special events with a temporary permit for a fee of $26.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This bill would take effect immediately.
