AN ACT CONCERNING PROVISIONAL PERMITS FOR THE RETAIL SALE OR MANUFACTURE OF ALCOHOLIC LIQUOR

SUMMARY: This act gives the Liquor Control Commission discretion to issue a 90-day provisional permit that allows any liquor permit applicant and his or her backer to manufacture alcoholic liquor. Existing law already allows the commission to issue provisional permits for retail alcohol sales. (Liquor permit applicants may apply for a provisional permit while waiting for the permit to be approved. )

By law, provisional permits cost $500. If the applicant or his or her backer causes any delay in the Department of Consumer Protection investigation, the provisional permit may be terminated immediately. Only one nonrenewable permit is issued to any applicant and backer for each alcoholic permit location. Permits may be extended if there are delays not caused by the applicant.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Upon passage
