Memo

BILL NUMBER:S6547

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to removing restrictions on wine and liquor auctions

PURPOSE: To remove restrictions on wine and liquor auctions.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends paragraph (b) of subdivision 2 of section 99-g of the alcoholic beverage control law by removing the restriction that a wine and liquor auction permit shall allow the holder to conduct twelve auctions of wine and/or liquor during the period the wine and liquor permit shall be in effect.

Section two provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Wine and liquor retailers must obtain a wine and liquor auction permit each year, which limits them to conducting only twelve auctions for the year. This bill will still require the retailers to obtain the permit, but the permit would not restrict the number of auctions that may be held.

New York is a center of the fine wine market, which includes auctions of privately-held stocks. The limitation of twelve auctions per year is an impediment to business, especially with the rise in internet auctions. This legislation will ensure that New York retailers are able to remain competitive in the lucrative auction business.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
