Current Bill Summary

HS/HCS/SCS/SB 834 - Wholesalers may give a retailer credit for a container with a capacity of four gallons or more, with an alcohol content of 5% or less, that was delivered but not used if the wholesaler removes the keg within seven days of the initial delivery in order to assure and control product quality.

PERMITS - In order to promote tourism, a person may apply for a license to sell intoxicating liquor by the drink at retail for consumption of the premises. The person shall only sell Missouri-produced wines received from licensed manufacturers. The premises may remain open from 6:00 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday, and between 11:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. Sundays.

RESORTS - This act allows resorts located in Miller, Morgan and Camden counties to apply for a special permit from the Supervisor of Liquor Control to remain open and sell liquor by the drink until 3:00 a.m. each day of the week and to open at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday.

The applicant must have had gross sales of $100,000 or more in the preceding year and must be a resort. A resort is defined as "any establishment having at least seventy-five rooms for the overnight accommodation of transient guests, having at least three thousand square feet of meeting space and having a restaurant located on the premises".

Any resort holding a special permit must ensure that only overnight guests of the resort are sold liquor between 1:30 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. The provisions in this section will terminate January 1, 2007.

AIRLINE CLUBS This act allows the Supervisor of Liquor Control to issue a retail license to sell intoxicating liquor between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and midnight on Sunday to any airline club. This license will cost $200 in addition to all other fees required by law. City and county regulations and fees will also apply to the license.

PENALTY Allows the supervisor of liquor control to assess a civil penalty or fine of between $100 and $5000 for violations, in lieu of suspension or revocation of a license. Any aggrieved person may appeal to the administrative hearing commission. The licensee has the opportunity to meet with the supervisor of liquor control before the issuance of an order, warning, probation, revocation, suspension or fine. The supervisor shall provide the licensee with a written description of the specific conduct for which discipline is sought.

This act contains an emergency clause.

This act is identical to HB 1065; SCS/SB 912; HB 1530 and SB 1002.
