NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A5964
 
SPONSOR: Magee
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the agriculture and markets law, in relation to the sale of ice cream or other frozen deserts made with wine   PURPOSE: To allow for the sale of wine ice cream in packages that are less than one pint.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 repeals the minimum packaging requirements for the sale of wine ice cream Section 2 is the effective date.   EXISTING LAW: Currently, New York allows for the sale of wine ice cream in packages that are one pint in volume or greater, but not less.   JUSTIFICATION: The sale of wine ice cream was enacted into law in 2008. Since that time, the demand for smaller packaging for weddings, fundraisers, recre- ational tours and other events has increased. This bill would lift the minimum requirements that are currently in law so as to accommodate this demand for smaller packaging sizes.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.
