N.Y.'s Cuomo Rejects Tighter Alcohol Regulations

Governor Andrew Cuomo on Monday rejected proposals by a health panel that would have increased taxes and regulations on alcohol, according to a published report. The New York State Public Health and Health Planning Council issued the proposal as part of its five-year Prevention Agenda for 2013 through 2017, the New York Post reported. It called for an increase in taxes on alcohol, a reduction in the number of new bars and liquor stores, and require that advertisements do not “glamorize” alcohol abuse, the newspaper reported.
