A09820 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A9820A
 
SPONSOR: Fahy
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 238 of the laws of 2021 relating to permitting the use of municipal space for outdoor dining, in relation to extending the effectiveness thereof   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The bill would extend provisions enabling those businesses licensed by the State Liquor Authority to sell alcohol for on-site consumption to use municipal space for outdoor dining.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 extends the effective date by 3 years.   JUSTIFICATION: Restaurants have been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many have closed, but many more are limping along. However, an important lifeline for those restaurants that have made it through the pandemic has been the ability to operate outdoors on sidewalks and streets. Many municipalities have been willing to assist restaurants in this regard, allowing the use of municipal outdoor space. Prior to Executive Order 202.38, those restaurants that sold alcohol were restricted from operat- ing outdoors on streets or sidewalks. The Governor allowed these restau- rants to operate outdoors through Executive Order 202.38, which was extremely helpful. Legislation was passed to extend that privilege; however, it is due to expire this year. This bill will make sure these restaurants, who employ so many New Yorkers, will be able to keep this privilege for another year and find a way back to stability and recov- ery.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: Undetermined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and shall expire and be deemed repealed three year after it shall have become a law.
