Current Bill Summary

SB 1002 - This act allows a wholesaler to give a retailer credit for intoxicating liquor with an alcohol content of less than 5% or 3.2% beer in a container with a capacity of four gallons or more that was delivered but not used, if the wholesaler removes the product within seven days of the initial delivery.

This act creates new penalties for licensees that are found by the Supervisor of Liquor Control to have violated liquor control laws. In lieu of suspension or revocation of a license, the Supervisor may assess certain amounts of fines to any licensed solicitor or retailer. Licensees may appeal the issuance of the fine to the Administrative Hearing Commission.

In order to encourage settlement, licensees are afforded the opportunity to meet with the Supervisor of Liquor Control before any disciplinary action is taken. The Supervisor of Liquor Control must provide the licensee with the time and place of the meeting and certain written information about licensee's conduct at issue.

This act is similar to HB 1530.
