DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the resentence is affirmed.
As we have previously held in this matter, there is no merit to the People's contention that a defendant from whom a merit-time allowance has been withheld pursuant to Correction Law § 803(1)(d)(iv) is not eligible for resentencing under the Drug Law Reform Act of 2005 (see L 2005, ch 643, § 1; People v Bispo, 47 AD3d 641, 642; People v Sanders, 36 AD3d 944, 946; People v Quinones, 11 Misc 3d 582, 595-596; cf. People v Williams, 48 AD3d 858, 859-860; People v Paniagua, 45 AD3d 98).
SPOLZINO, J.P., SKELOS, DILLON and COVELLO, JJ., concur.
