Dear NYSLSA Members,

We wanted to pass along a link to the SLA hearing, as we have received a number of questions in regards to the e-blast we sent out last week. 

Please click HERE to view the hearing. 

At a SLA hearing last Wednesday, a husband and wife who each have a store and were caught moving goods between there stores went before the full Board. Their attorney offered the Authority $5,000 each store as a fine but some of the members wanted to cancel BOTH licenses, claiming swapping goods was a one of the worst offenses in our industry. One of the members argued since it was there first offense to stick to a monetary penalty. The board came back with $20,000 each store with the understanding that if it happens again both licenses will be cancelled. The fine totaled $40,000.

Thank you.

NYSLSA Board of Directors
