Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

DCA proposes to revise its rules to establish the community district caps required by Local Laws 144 and 146 of 2017 and create procedures that DCA would follow to accept applications for Tobacco Retail Dealer (“TRD”) and Electronic Cigarette Retail Dealer (“ECRD”) licenses under the community district caps. Local Law 144 of 2017 requires that ECRD licenses be capped at half the number of such licenses that have been issued on August 23, 2018, by community district. Local Law 146 of 2017 reduces the number of TRDs by capping the TRD licenses in each community district at half of the number of licenses that have been issued as of February 24, 2018. No new ECRD or TRD licenses will be issued in a community district until the total number of licenses decreases through attrition below the respective caps.

DCA’s authority for these rule is found in Sections 1043, 2203(c), 2203(f), and 2203(h)(1) of the City Charter, Section 20-104(e) of the Administrative Code of the City of New York, and Section 8 of Local Law 144 of 2017.
