Current Bill Summary

CCS/HCS/SB 994 - This act modifies provisions relating to alcohol.

THE MISSOURI WINE AND GRAPE BOARD (Section 262.823) - Currently, the Missouri Wine and Grape Board may participate in studies in the areas of sales, promotions, and the effective distribution of Missouri wines in order to effectuate the goals of the Board. Under this act, the Board would also be able to oversee and provide any professional or legal services to promote such marketing goals.

LIQUOR LICENSES AND PERMITS (Section 311.060) - Currently, if any person's dealer license or permit is revoked, they shall not be granted any new liquor license or permit, or be allowed to work for any establishment possessing a liquor license or permit. Under this act, any person whose license or permit has been revoked shall be eligible to work as an employee of an establishment holding a license 5 years after the person's license revocation, and such person shall be able to reapply for a new license or permit after 5 years. Any license or permit reapplication after 5 years shall be issued at the discretion of the Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control.

This provision is identical to a provision contained in SCS/HB 2104 (2016) and the perfected HB 2028 (2016).

LIQUOR SALES AT RETAIL ON A BOAT (Section 311.091) - Currently, a person may receive a license to sell liquor by the drink on any boat licensed by the United States Coast Guard to carry 100 or more passengers. This act instead allows such license to be issued for boats licensed to carry 30 or more passengers.

This act also repeals a provision that allows a person to get a license to serve liquor by the drink at retail for consumption on a boat that can carry 45 to 99 passengers and is on Table Rock Lake.

This provision is identical to the perfected HB 2101 (2016), HB 149 (2015), HB 1615 (2014), and HCS/SB 786 (2014). This provision is similar to HCS/HB 1664 (2016), HB 1665 (2016), HB 1666 (2016).

CONTROLLED LIQUOR SELF-DISPENSING SYSTEMS (Section 311.205) - Currently, licensed liquor retailers may use table tap dispensing systems that allow patrons to self-dispense up to 32 ounces of beer per patron at their tables. This act expands this statute to allow licensed liquor retailers to use self-dispensing systems that allow patrons to self-dispense up to 32 ounces of beer or 16 ounces of wine. The act removes references to table taps and instead refers to self-dispensing systems.

This provision is identical to a provision contained in HCS/SS/SCS/SB 919 (2016), SCS/HB 2104 (2016), HCS/HB 2054 (2016), HB 2028 (2016), SB 859 (2016), and SB 919 (2016).


Under this act, entertainment facilities such as arenas and stadiums shall not be prohibited from selling alcoholic beverages through the use of mobile applications if such facilities possess requisite licenses and permits. "Mobile application" is defined as set forth in this act. Any employee of a facility selling alcoholic beverages purchased through a mobile application shall require the purchasing individual to show a government-issued photo identification to verify the person's age.

This provision is identical to SB 995 (2016), HB 2282 (2016), SCS/HB 2104 (2016), and HB 2028 (2016).
