Bill Allows Issuance of Additional Alcoholic Beverage Licenses within Boundaries of Formally Owned or Operated Military Installations
Source: News From The Assembly Democrats
Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Eric Houghtaling, Joann Downey and Joseph Egan to issue additional alcoholic beverage licenses to a project area in three municipalities and at which a federally owned or operated military installation is closed and transferred to a government entity for the purpose of conversion, redevelopment, or revitalization advanced Monday in the Assembly.
Under the current law, a municipality may issue one plenary retail consumption license, for bars and restaurants, for each 3,000 of its population. This bill provides that an increase in population resulting from residential development in a formerly federally owned or operated military installation would not be included in the calculation issued to new licenses.
