A sin tax bill has been introduced to the New York State Assembly that would create a new revenue stream for New York City's school construction authority.

The bill, introduced by Assemblyman James F. Brennan, D-Brooklyn, would amend the state's finance laws to create a city fund for school facilities. It would be funded with an increase in the New York City excise taxes on beer and liquor, a new tax on wine in the city, and a 5% surcharge on city lottery winnings.
