Statement of Basis and Purpose of Rule

Section 20-464(d) of Subchapter 27 of Chapter 2 of Title 20 of the New York City Administrative Code prohibits a general vendor from selling, lending, leasing or transferring his or her general vendor license or interest in the license unless authorized by the Commissioner of the Department of Consumer Affairs. Currently, the laws and rules applicable to general vendors do not specify the circumstances under which the Commissioner may authorize the transfer of a vending license. Section 35-a of Article 4 of Chapter 20 of the New York State General Business Law requires the transfer of a specialized vending license held by a disabled veteran to the spouse, children or guardian of surviving minor children of the vendor in certain circumstances upon the death or disability of the licensee. The new rule, to be codified under a new section 2-317 of subchapter AA of chapter 2 of title 6 of the Rules of the City of New York, provides that the transfer of general vending licenses is subject to the same set of standards as the transfer of specialized vending licenses, which currently apply only to disabled veterans.
