BILL NUMBER:A1370

TITLE  OF BILL:   An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in
relation to allowing retail licensees  for  on-premises  consumption  to
join in a cooperative agreement for the purchase of alcoholic beverages

PURPOSE:

This  legislation  would establish a cooperative buying system to enable
groups of licensees to purchase alcoholic beverages.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

The bill would add a new section 106-c to the alcoholic beverage control
law to provide the above measure.

EXISTING LAW:

Not in the current law.

JUSTIFICATION:

The practice of groups of individuals or companies joining  together  to
make  bulk  purchases  of  goods  is a well accepted method for reducing
business costs. Trade associations, purchasing  groups  and  many  other
organizations  engage  in this practice in order to save money for their
participants.

On-premises retail alcohol beverage licensees are  currently  prohibited
from  benefiting from this practice to purchase alcoholic beverages from
suppliers, a restriction which is a remnant of a regulatory  need  which
has  long  passed. This increases costs and places small business owners
at considerable competitive disadvantage  to  larger,  corporate  chains
that can routinely afford to buy in bulk to keep costs at a minimum.
