Memo

BILL NUMBER:S1172

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to the sale of non-food wine or liquor supplies, accessories and/or barware

PURPOSE: This bill would amend the current law to include the sale of wine supplies and accessories, which shall include any item utilized for the storage, transport, serving or consumption of wine or for decorative purposes whether sold as single items or combined into a package containing wine or a wine product. This bill also states that if a business is caught by the liquor authority of selling any products not stated in this bill then they must be given a written warning from the liquor authority, affording them no less than 30 days notice within which to cease engaging in other businesses on the licensed premises.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 63 is amended to read sale of wine supplies and accessories, which shall include any item utilized for the storage, transport, serving or consumption of wine or for decorative purposes whether sold as single items or combined into a package containing wine or a wine product, shall not constitute engaging in another business within the meaning of this subdivision. section 63.7 is amended to read No licensee may be assessed a civil penalty for a violation of subdivision four of this section, unless they have first been given a written warning from the liquor authority, affording them no less than 30 days notice within which to cease engaging in other businesses on the licensed premises. Such warning shall enumerate the specific items which must be removed to comply with subdivision four of this section.

JUSTIFICATION Due to recent events the liquor authority has fined liquor stores up to ten thousand dollars for selling wine gift bags and accessories without warning. This bill would allow liquor stores the time they need to remove the items they are not allowed to sell before a fine is imposed.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2011 - REFERRED TO COMMERCE, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND SMALL BUSINESS 2012 - Passed Senate

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
