SPONSOR: Pretlow
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to prohibiting the removal, confiscation or destruction of lottery tickets prior to such game's expiration date   PURPOSE: This bill would prohibit the confiscation of lottery tickets from. retailers which negates the sale to potential consumers and would allow for tickets to be sold up until the end of the game.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Subdivision A of section 1609 of the tax law, as amended by chapter 254 of the laws of 2008, is amended to state that the division shall not remove, confiscate or destroy any lottery ticket from any vendor prior to such game's expiration date.   JUSTIFICATION: There have been instances where Lottery Tickets were taken from distrib- utors, with little or no justification. Confiscating tickets deprives a customer of buying a potential winning ticket. There has been no adequate reasoning for the recall of these tickets, and the demand has been so high that customers seek other retailers that may have tickets. This bill is to ensure that every person who wants to buy a lottery ticket isn't limited to or deterred because tickets were recalled from a distributor.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 03/24/16 referred to racing and wagering 05/25/16 reported referred to ways and means   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
