Current Bill Summary

SB 102 - This act prohibits out-of-state manufacturers and retailers from directly shipping alcohol to any person in this state who does not hold a manufacturer's or wholesaler's license.

PENALTY - For the first violation, the Supervisor of Liquor Control will issue a cease and desist order informing the out-of- state retailer to quit selling alcohol to Missouri residents. If the retailer violates the law again within a two-year period, it will be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.

PENALTY FOR SELLING TO MINORS - If a manufacturer or retailer knowingly ships alcohol to a Missouri resident who is under the age of twenty-one, it will be guilty of a Class D felony.

PENALTY FOR DELIVERY PERSON - If a delivery person knows or has reason to know that the package he is delivering contains alcohol, and that the person he is delivering it to is under the age of twenty-one, the delivery person will be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.

DIRECT SHIPMENT OF WINE EXCEPTION - This act will not apply to the direct shipment of wine as provided for in Section 311.462, RSMo. Currently under Missouri law, an adult resident can import up to two cases of wine per year from another state which permits the same privilege.
