From the Daily News:
ALBANY - It's a buzz kill.
A Queens state senator is moving to stop "modern-day moonshines" by banning booze with an alcohol content over 160 proof.
Republican Frank Padavan's bill is in response to a Daily News story on the State Liquor Authority's recent approval of four brands of 192-proof booze, which are 96% alcohol.
The liquor authority said it approved the products after deeming they were not "false, misleading or deceptive to consumers."
There are no state laws on the books limiting alcohol content in booze.
