     1    Section 1. Subdivision 3 of section  130  of  the  alcoholic  beverage
     2  control  law,  as amended by chapter 321 of the laws of 1977, is amended
     3  to read as follows:
     4    3. (a) Any violation by any person of any provision  of  this  chapter
     5  for  which  no  punishment  or  penalty is otherwise provided shall be a
     6  misdemeanor, provided, however, that the provisions  of  this  [subdivi-
     7  sion]  paragraph  shall  not  apply  to the prohibitions provided for in
     8  subdivision six-a of section one hundred six of this [chapter] article.
     9    (b) In lieu of such misdemeanor penalty as provided for  in  paragraph
    10  (a) of this subdivision, for a first time violation of either this chap-
    11  ter,  an  authority  rule,  or  regulation,  any of which are related to
    12  administrative or paperwork violations submitted to or requested by  the
    13  authority  or  to actions or omissions that are reasonably determined by
    14  the authority to be de minimus under the  circumstances,  the  authority
    15  shall  provide  for  a cure period or other opportunity for ameliorative
    16  action if the violation can be corrected, the successful  completion  of

    20  provided for in section sixty-five or subdivision six-a of  section  one
    21  hundred  six  of  this  chapter. Further, no waiver of penalties or cure
