Professor Robert Pitler Suggests Sweeping Changes for State Liquor Authority
The New York Law Revision Commission has released a 43-page evaluation of the State Liquor Authority. The report says the SLA "jeopardizes public health and safety and exacerbates the economic crisis currently plaguing New York," and recommends huge changes to streamline the liquor regulation, including extending hours for the sale of alcohol. The Times Union quoted Professor Pitler, chair of the Law Rivision Commission, who said, "This is clearly the largest...most work-intensive report [he's] been involved with...What they're facing is massive."
