Cuomo has unveiled the19 th proposal of the 2020 State of the State - growing New York'scraft beverage manufacturing industry by reforming antiquatedprohibition-era laws, removing barriers to new investments.The Governor's proposal will makeit easier for movie theatres to sellalcoholic beverages, giving them morerevenue and craft producers additionalretail outlets; and modernise New York'sAlcoholic Beverage Control law to helphigher education institutions train thenext generation of the craft beverageworkforce."New York's craft beverage industryis flourishing thanks to eight years oftargeted investments and forwardthinkingpolicies that are attractingnew businesses and supporting ourbooming tourism industry," GovernorCuomo said. "This measure willremove outdated Prohibition-erarules that hamper private sectorinvestment, ensure we're training thenext generation of workers in a criticalindustry and give more New Yorkers theopportunity to responsibly enjoy a drinkat the movies."The Governor proposes amendingNew York's Tied House Law, an arcaneprovision of the Alcoholic BeverageControl – or ABC – Law that makesrelocating to or opening or investing in abusiness in New York needlessly difficult.Prohibition-era Tied House Laws areintended to prevent manufacturersor wholesalers from having undueinfluence over a retail business thatsells beverages directly to consumers.New York's law, on the books since1933, prohibits all such retailer andmanufacturer/wholesaler relationships,and is even stricter than long-standingfederal law, which provides discretion byanalysing the details of the relationshipwhen there is a partial ownership stake,and allows such a relationship whenownership is total.New York now ranks in the top five inthe US for its number of craft beverageproducers in every category. The stateranks first in US for the number ofhard cider producers, second in craftdistillers, third in breweries, and fourthin the country for the total number ofwineriesPAVILLON 7.1 / STAND F5414 • VINEXPO DAILY • MONDAY 10 TH FEBRUARY
