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: To extend the temporary retail permit system within New York State's Alcoholic Beverage Control law until October 12, 2013.
