GOVERNOR SIGNS LEGISLATION OVERHAULING ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE CONTROL LAW, INCLUDING EXPANSION OF SUNDAY HOURS OF SALE

  

On September 7, 2016 Governor Cuomo signed into law changes to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law. Effective immediately, on-premises licensees will be able to sell and serve alcoholic beverages starting at 10 AM on Sundays. Previously alcoholic beverages could not be served for on-premises consumption until Noon on Sundays. Other changes made by this legislation will go into effect in sixty days. Those changes include: a permit available outside of New York City to sell alcoholic beverages for on-premises consumption starting at 8 AM on Sundays; the creation of an importer’s license; and the elimination of solicitor permits for craft manufacturers. For additional information about the new law, please contact the Authority’s Office of Counsel at legal@sla.ny.gov.
