Governor Cuomo recently signed two bills amending the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law. One of these new laws requires applicants to provide additional information on their original and renewal applications. The other law places limits on the ability of the Authority to prosecute contaminated bottle charges against retailers.
A3869/S3978. This new law amends sections 109 and 110 of the ABC Law to add a new item that must be included in all applications (original and renewals). The applications must now include “a statement indicating the type of establishment to be operated at the premises. Such statement shall indicate the occurrence of topless entertainment and/or exotic dancing whether topless or otherwise, including, but not limited to, pole dancing and lap dancing, at the establishment.” The new law provides that the Authority cannot waive this new item. So every original application and every renewal application will have to include the required statement.
This law takes effect on September 29, 2013. New forms reflecting the change in the law will be available on the Authority’s website by August 16th.
