§ 105-b. Posting of certain signs. 1. The authority shall prepare,
have printed and distribute across the state to all persons with a
license to sell any alcoholic beverage for consumption on the premises
or a license to sell any alcoholic beverage for consumption off the
premises, a sign or poster with conspicuous lettering that states:
"Government Warning: According to the Surgeon General, women should not
drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy because of the risk of birth
defects". Such sign or poster must have conspicuous lettering in at
least seventy-two point bold face type that states the warning set forth
in this subdivision, except that such sign or poster shall be captioned
with the word "warning" in at least two inch lettering.

2. All persons with a license to sell any alcoholic beverage for
consumption on the premises or a license to sell any alcoholic beverage
for consumption off the premises shall display in a conspicuous place
the sign or poster upon receiving it from the authority. Such sign shall
be placed as close as possible to the place where alcoholic beverages
are sold.

3. Any person with such license who violates the provisions of this
section shall be subject to a civil penalty, not to exceed one hundred
dollars for each day of violation.

4. Compliance with the provisions of any local law requiring the
posting of signs containing warnings regarding alcoholic beverages
enacted on or before the date on which the provisions of this section
shall have become a law, shall be deemed to be in compliance with the
provisions of this section. Nothing contained herein, however, shall be
deemed to exempt any licensee not otherwise subject to the provisions of
any such local law from complying with the provisions of this section.
