    Sec.  15. Section 30-8 of the general statutes
is repealed and the following  is  substituted  in
lieu thereof:
    The  department  of  [liquor control] CONSUMER
PROTECTION and any  agent  thereof  authorized  to
conduct  any  inquiry,  investigation  or  hearing
under the provisions of this  chapter  shall  have
power to administer oaths and take testimony under
oath  relative  to  the  matter  of   inquiry   or
investigation.  At  any  hearing  ordered  by  the
department, the department or  such  agent  having
authority   by  law  to  issue  such  process  may
subpoena witnesses and require the  production  of
records,  papers  and  documents pertinent to such
inquiry. No witness under subpoena  authorized  to
be  issued by the provisions of this section shall
be  excused  from  testifying  or  from  producing
records,  papers  or  documents on the ground that
such testimony or the production of  such  records
or   other  documentary  evidence  would  tend  to
incriminate him, but such evidence or the  records
or papers so produced and any information directly
or indirectly derived from such evidence,  records
or  papers  shall  not  be  used  in  any criminal
proceeding against him.  If  any  person  disobeys
such  process  or,  having  appeared  in obedience
thereto, refuses to answer any pertinent  question
put  to  him  by  the department or its authorized
agent  or  to  produce  any  records  and   papers
pursuant  thereto, the department or its agent may
apply to  the  superior  court  for  the  judicial
district  of  Hartford-New  Britain*  or  for  the
judicial district wherein the  person  resides  or
wherein the business has been conducted, or to any
judge of said court if the same is not in session,
setting  forth  such  disobedience  to  process or
refusal to answer, and said court  or  such  judge
shall cite such person to appear before said court
or such  judge  to  answer  such  question  or  to
produce  such  records  and  papers  and, upon his
refusal so to do, shall commit such  person  to  a
community  correctional center until he testifies,
but not for  a  longer  period  than  sixty  days.
Notwithstanding  the  serving  of the term of such
commitment  by  any  person,  the  department  may
proceed  with  such  inquiry and examination as if
the witness had not previously been called upon to
testify.  Officers  who  serve subpoenas issued by
the  department  or  under   its   authority   and
witnesses   attending  hearings  conducted  by  it
hereunder shall receive like fees and compensation
as  officers  and  witnesses in the courts of this
state to be paid on vouchers of the department  on
order of the comptroller.

or restrict such sale to beer  only,  such  action
shall  not  apply  to the sale of alcoholic liquor
under a golf country club permit, except that  the
granting  of  any such permit by the department of
[liquor  control]  CONSUMER  PROTECTION  shall  be
subject  to  the  provisions  of  section  30-25a,
provided any such permit issued prior  to  October
1,  1973,  shall  be  subject to the provisions of
said section 30-25a only if the  holder  fails  to
renew   such  permit  or  it  is  revoked  by  the
department for cause.
    Sec.  17.  Subsection  (a) of section 30-14 of
the general statutes is repealed and the following
is substituted in lieu thereof:
    (a)  A  permit  shall  be  a  purely  personal
privilege,  good  for  one  year  after  issuance,

30-35, 30-37b,  30-37d,  30-37g  and  30-37h,  and
revocable  in  the discretion of the department of
[liquor control] CONSUMER  PROTECTION  subject  to
appeal as provided in section 30-55, and shall not
constitute property, nor shall it  be  subject  to
attachment   and   execution,   nor  shall  it  be
alienable, nor shall it descend  by  the  laws  of
testate  or  intestate  devolution,  but  it shall
cease upon the death of the permittee, provided  a

CONSUMER PROTECTION may issue  one  package  store
permit  for every twenty-five hundred residents of
a  town  as  determined  by  the   most   recently

of this chapter.
    Sec.   19.   Section   30-15  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:

manufacture of alcoholic liquor and  the  storage,
bottling  and  wholesale  distribution and sale of
alcoholic  liquor  manufactured  or   bottled   to
permittees  in this state and without the state as

be  granted  unless  the  place or the plan of the
place of manufacture has received the approval  of
the   department   of  [liquor  control]  CONSUMER
PROTECTION. A holder of a manufacturer permit  may
apply   for  and  shall  receive  an  out-of-state
shipper's  permit  for  manufacturing  plants  and
warehouse  locations  outside  the  state owned by
such  manufacturer  or  a  subsidiary  corporation
thereof,  at  least  eighty-five  per  cent of the
voting  stock  of   which   is   owned   by   such
manufacturer,  to  bring into any of its plants or
warehouses in  the  state  alcoholic  liquors  for
reprocessing,   repackaging,  reshipment  or  sale
either  (1)  within  the   state   to   wholesaler
permittees   not   owned  or  controlled  by  such
manufacturer or (2) outside the state. A holder of
a   manufacturer  permit,  except  a  manufacturer
permit for cider, may apply for and shall  receive
a   wholesaler   permit.  The  annual  fee  for  a
manufacturer permit  shall  be  one  thousand  six
hundred dollars.
    Sec.   21.   Section   30-17  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:
    (a)  (1)  A  wholesaler permit shall allow the
bottling of alcoholic  liquor  and  the  wholesale
sale  of  alcoholic  liquor  to permittees in this
state and without the state, as may  be  permitted
by  law,  and  the  sale  of  alcoholic liquors to
vessels engaged in coastwise or foreign  commerce,
and  the  sale of alcohol and alcoholic liquor for
industrial purposes to nonpermittees,  such  sales
to  be  made  in  accordance  with the regulations
adopted by  the  department  of  [liquor  control]
CONSUMER  PROTECTION,  and the sale of alcohol and
alcoholic  liquor  for   medicinal   purposes   to
hospitals   and  charitable  institutions  and  to
religious organizations for  sacramental  purposes
and  the  receipt  from  out-of-state  shippers of
multiple packages of  still  wines  and  sparkling
wines. The holder of a wholesaler permit may apply
for and shall thereupon  receive  an  out-of-state
shipper's   permit  for  direct  importation  from
abroad of alcoholic liquors  manufactured  outside
the  United  States  and an out-of-state shipper's
permit for direct importation from abroad of  beer
manufactured outside the United States. The annual
fee for a wholesaler permit shall be two  thousand
four hundred dollars.
    (2)  When  a holder of a wholesaler permit has
had the  distributorship  of  any  alcohol,  beer,
spirits  or  wine  product  of  a  manufacturer or
out-of-state shipper for six months or more,  such
distributorship   may   be   terminated   or   its
geographic  territory  diminished  upon  (A)   the
execution   of   a   written  stipulation  by  the
wholesaler  and   manufacturer   or   out-of-state
shipper agreeing to the change and the approval of
such change by the department of [liquor  control]
CONSUMER  PROTECTION;  or  (B)  the  sending  of a
written notice by registered mail, return  receipt
requested,  by  the  manufacturer  or out-of-state
shipper to the wholesaler, a copy of which  notice
has  been  sent simultaneously by registered mail,
return receipt requested,  to  the  department  of
[liquor  control]  CONSUMER  PROTECTION.  No  such
termination or diminishment shall become effective
except  for  just  and  sufficient cause, provided
such cause shall be set forth in such  notice  and
the   department   of  [liquor  control]  CONSUMER
PROTECTION shall determine,  after  hearing,  that
just  and sufficient cause exists. If an emergency
occurs, caused by the wholesaler,  prior  to  such
hearing,  which  threatens  the  manufacturers' or
out-of-state  shippers'  products   or   otherwise
endangers  the  business  of  the  manufacturer or
out-of-state  shipper  and   said   emergency   is
established  to the satisfaction of the department
of  [liquor  control]  CONSUMER  PROTECTION,   the
department may temporarily suspend such wholesaler
permit or  take  whatever  reasonable  action  the
department  deems  advisable  to  provide for such
emergency and the  department  may  continue  such
temporary  action  until its decision after a full
hearing.  The  department  of   [liquor   control]
CONSUMER PROTECTION shall render its decision with
reasonable  promptness  following  such   hearing.
Notwithstanding  the  aforesaid, a manufacturer or
out-of-state  shipper  may  appoint  one  or  more
additional  wholesalers  as the distributor for an
alcohol,  spirits  or  wine  product  within  such
territory,  provided such appointment shall not be
effective until six  months  from  the  date  such
manufacturer  or  out-of-state  shipper sets forth
such intention in written notice to  the  existing
wholesaler  by  registered  mail,  return  receipt
requested,   with   a   copy   of   such    notice
simultaneously  sent  by  registered  mail, return
receipt requested, to the  department  of  [liquor
control]   CONSUMER   PROTECTION.   For  just  and
sufficient cause, a manufacturer  or  out-of-state
shipper   may   appoint  one  or  more  additional
wholesalers as the distributor for a beer  product
within  such  territory provided such manufacturer
or out-of-state shipper sets forth such  intention
and  cause  in  written  notice  to  the  existing
wholesaler  by  registered  mail,  return  receipt
requested,    with   a   copy   of   such   notice
simultaneously sent  by  registered  mail,  return
receipt  requested,  to  the department of [liquor
control] CONSUMER PROTECTION. For the purposes  of
this  section,  "just  and sufficient cause" means
the  existence  of  circumstances  which,  in  the
opinion  of a reasonable person considering all of
the  equities  of  both  the  wholesaler  and  the
manufacturer  or  out-of-state  shipper warrants a
termination or a diminishment of a distributorship
as  the  case  may  be.  For  the purposes of this
section, "manufacturer  or  out-of-state  shipper"
means the manufacturer or out-of-state shipper who
originally  granted  a  distributorship   of   any
alcohol,  beer,  spirits  or  wine  product  to  a
wholesaler, any successor to such manufacturer  or
out-of-state  shipper, which successor has assumed
the contractual relationship with such  wholesaler
by   assignment   or   otherwise,   or  any  other
manufacturer or out-of-state shipper who  acquires
the  right  to ship such alcohol, beer, spirits or
wine into the state.
    (3)   Nothing   contained   herein   shall  be
construed to interfere with the authority  of  the
department of [liquor control] CONSUMER PROTECTION
to  retain   or   adopt   reasonable   regulations
concerning  the  termination  or diminishment of a
distributorship held by a wholesaler for less than
six months.
    (4)  All hearings held hereunder shall be held
in accordance with the provisions of chapter 54.
    (b)  A  wholesaler permit for beer shall be in
all respects the  same  as  a  wholesaler  permit,
except  that the scope of operations of the holder
shall be limited to beer; but shall  not  prohibit
the  handling  of  nonalcoholic  merchandise.  The
holder of a wholesaler permit for beer  may  apply
for  and  shall  thereupon receive an out-of-state
shipper's  permit  for  direct  importation   from
abroad  of  beer  manufactured  outside the United
States. The annual fee for a wholesaler permit for
beer shall be eight hundred dollars.
    Sec.   22.   Section  30-17b  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:
    (a)   No  person  shall  be  employed  by  any
wholesaler of alcoholic liquor to  sell  or  offer
for  sale  alcoholic  liquor  to  any  retailer of
alcoholic  liquor  unless  such  person  holds   a
wholesaler's  salesman  certificate  or  files  an
application for such certificate  not  later  than
ten days after the date of his initial employment.
Any  person  desiring  a   wholesaler's   salesman
certificate or renewal thereof, shall file a sworn
application for such certificate upon forms to  be
furnished  by  the  department of [liquor control]
CONSUMER PROTECTION, showing his name, address and
such  other  information  as  the  department  may
require. An application for an initial certificate
shall be accompanied by a nonrefundable fee in the
amount of twenty-five dollars.  Upon  approval  of
such  application,  the  department  shall issue a
certificate  which  shall  be  renewed  only  upon
change  of employment. If a certified wholesaler's
salesman changes employment, a renewal application
shall  be  filed not later than ten days after the
date such new employment commences  and  shall  be
accompanied  by  a nonrefundable fee in the amount
of twenty-five dollars.
    (b)   The   department   shall   not  issue  a
wholesaler's salesman certificate  to  any  person
who  is,  by statute or regulation, declared to be
an unsuitable person to  hold  a  permit  to  sell
alcoholic liquor.
    (c)   The   department   of  [liquor  control]
CONSUMER PROTECTION may, in its discretion, refuse
a certificate to a wholesaler's salesman if it has
reasonable  ground  to  believe:  (1)   That   the
applicant appears to be financially irresponsible;
(2) that the applicant is in the  habit  of  using
alcoholic   beverages  to  excess;  (3)  that  the
applicant has wilfully made any false statement to
the  department  in a material matter; or (4) that
the applicant has been convicted of violating  any
of  the  liquor laws of this or any other state or
the liquor laws of the United States or  has  been
convicted  of  a felony as such term is defined in
section 53a-25 or has such a criminal record  that
the  department  reasonably  believes  he is not a
suitable person to hold a certificate, provided no
refusal  shall  be rendered under this subdivision
except  in  accordance  with  the  provisions   of
sections 46a-80 and 46a-81.
    (d)   The   department   of  [liquor  control]
CONSUMER PROTECTION may, of its own motion, revoke
or  suspend  a  wholesaler's  salesman certificate
upon cause found after hearing, provided ten days'
written  notice  of such hearing has been given to
the holder of the certificate setting forth,  with
the  particulars  required in civil pleadings, the
charges upon which  such  proposed  revocation  or
suspension   is   predicated   and   provided   no
certificate shall be suspended or revoked for  any
violation  of  this chapter of which the holder of
the certificate was finally found not  guilty  by,
or   received   dismissal   in,   a  court  having
jurisdiction thereof, and no  disciplinary  action
shall  be  taken  thereafter  by  said  department
against  the  holder  of  the   certificate,   and
provided the department shall not initiate hearing
proceedings pursuant to this  section  based  upon
any arrest which has not resulted in a conviction.
Any  appeal  from  such  order  of  revocation  or
suspension  shall  be taken in accordance with the
provisions of section 4-183.
    (e)  Any person who applies for a wholesaler's
salesman certificate or for the  renewal  of  such
certificate,  whose  application is refused or any
person who holds a certificate which is revoked or
suspended  by  the  department of [liquor control]
CONSUMER PROTECTION may appeal  therefrom  in  the
same manner as provided in section 30-60.

other  provision  of  law,  such  store  may  sell
cigarettes,   publications,  bar  utensils,  which

substituted in lieu thereof:
    (a)   The   department   of  [liquor  control]
CONSUMER PROTECTION may,  except  as  to  a  store
engaged chiefly in the sale of groceries refuse to
grant permits for the sale of alcoholic liquor  if
it  has  reasonable cause to believe: (1) That the
proximity of  the  permit  premises  will  have  a
detrimental  effect  upon  any  church,  public or
parochial school, convent, charitable institution,
whether  supported  by  private  or  public funds,
hospital or veterans' home or any  camp,  barracks
or flying field of the armed forces; (2) that such
location is in such proximity to a no-permit  town
that  it is apparent that the applicant is seeking
to obtain the patronage of such town; (3) that the
number  of permit premises in the locality is such
that the granting of a permit  is  detrimental  to
public  interest, and, in reaching a conclusion in
this respect,  the  department  may  consider  the
character  of,  the  population  of, the number of
like permits and number of  all  permits  existent
in,   the   particular   town  and  the  immediate
neighborhood concerned, the  effect  which  a  new
permit may have on such town or neighborhood or on
like   permits   existent   in   such   town    or
neighborhood;   (4)   that   the  place  has  been
conducted as a lewd or  disorderly  establishment;
or  (5) that there is any other reason as provided
by  state  or  federal  law  or  regulation  which
warrants such refusal.
    (b)  (1) The existence of a coliseum permit or
a coliseum concession permit shall not be a factor
to  be  taken into consideration under subdivision
(3) of subsection (a) of  this  section.  (2)  The
provisions  of  subdivisions  (1),  (2) and (3) of
subsection (a) of this section shall not apply  to
the  granting  of  a coliseum permit or a coliseum
concession   permit.   (3)   The   provisions   of
subdivisions  (1),  (2), (3) and (5) of subsection
(a)  of  this  section  shall  not  apply  to  the
granting  of  any special sporting facility permit
provided for in section 30-33b.
    (c)  Alcoholic  liquor  may  be sold at retail
for consumption within a special sporting facility
only  under  the  permits  provided for in section
30-33b. The number of permits of  any  class,  the
location  where  alcoholic  liquor  is  to be sold
under any such permit, the number of locations  to
be  operated  under  a  special  sporting facility
concession  permit,  and  the  areas  within  such
facility  where  alcoholic  liquor may be consumed
shall be determined by the department  of  [liquor
control] CONSUMER PROTECTION in its discretion.
    Sec.   50.   Section   30-47  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:
    The  department  of  [liquor control] CONSUMER
PROTECTION may, in its discretion, refuse a permit

reasonable  ground  to  believe:  (1)   That   the
applicant  appears to be financially irresponsible
or neglects to provide for his family, or neglects
or  is  unable to pay his just debts; (2) that the
applicant has been  provided  with  funds  by  any
wholesaler  or  manufacturer  or has any forbidden
connection with any other class  of  permittee  as
herein  provided; (3) that the applicant is in the
habit of using alcoholic beverages to excess;  (4)
that  the  applicant  has  wilfully made any false
statement to the department in a material  matter;
(5)  that  the  applicant  has  been  convicted of
violating any of the liquor laws of  this  or  any
other  state  or  the  liquor  laws  of the United
States or has been convicted of a felony  as  such
term  is  defined  in section 53a-25 or has such a
criminal record  that  the  department  reasonably
believes  he  is  not  a suitable person to hold a
permit, provided  no  refusal  shall  be  rendered
under  this  subdivision except in accordance with
the provisions of sections 46a-80 and  46a-81;  or
(6)   if  the  permittee-applicant  has  not  been
delegated  full  authority  and  control  of  such

therein. Any backer shall be subject to  the  same
disqualifications  as  herein provided in the case

    Sec.   52.   Section   30-51  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:
    (a)  No  permit  may be issued for the sale of
alcoholic liquor in any  building,  a  portion  of
which  will  not  be  used as the permit premises,
unless the application therefor is accompanied  by
an affidavit signed and sworn to by the applicant,
stating  that  access  from  the  portion  of  the
building  that  will  not  be  used  as the permit
premises to the portion of the building that  will
be  used  as  the  permit  premises is effectually
closed, unless the department of [liquor  control]
CONSUMER PROTECTION endorses upon such application
that it has  dispensed  with  such  affidavit  for
reasons considered by it good and satisfactory and
also endorses thereon such reasons. If any way  of
access  from the other portion of such building to
the portion used as the permit premises is opened,
after  such  permit is issued, without the consent
of the department  of  [liquor  control]  CONSUMER
PROTECTION  endorsed  on  such permit, such permit
shall thereupon become and be forfeited,  with  or
without  notice  from  the  department  of [liquor
control] CONSUMER PROTECTION, and  shall  be  null
and  void.  If  such applicant or any permittee or
any backer thereof opens,  causes  to  be  opened,
permits  to be opened or allows to remain open, at
any time during the term for which such permit  is
issued,  any  way  of access from any portion of a
building not part of the permit  premises  to  any
other  portion of such building that is the permit
premises,  without  the  written  consent  of  the
department of [liquor control] CONSUMER PROTECTION
endorsed on such permit, such persons  or  backers
shall  be  subject  to  the  penalties provided in
section 30-113. The department of [liquor control]
CONSUMER  PROTECTION shall require every applicant
for a permit to sell  alcoholic  liquor  to  state
under  oath whether any portion of the building in
which it is proposed to  carry  on  such  business
will  not  be used as the permit premises; and, if
so, said department of [liquor  control]  CONSUMER
PROTECTION  shall  appoint  a  suitable  person to
examine the premises and to see that any  and  all
access  between  the portion so to be used for the
sale of alcoholic liquor and the  portion  not  so
used  is effectually closed, and may designate the
manner of such closing, and, if  necessary,  order
seals  to  be  placed  so  that such way of access
cannot be opened without breaking the  seals,  and
the  breaking  or  removal  of such seals or other
methods  of  preventing  access,  so  ordered  and
provided,  shall  be  prima  facie  evidence  of a
violation of this section.  The  above  provisions
shall  not apply to any premises operating under a
hotel permit, or any premises  operating  under  a
restaurant  permit,  which premises are located in
or attached to a motel, and shall not apply to any
entrance   to  a  building  in  which  is  located
premises operating under a  tavern  permit,  which

motorists, but is not a place where food is served
at  all  times  or  where  kitchen and dining room
facilities necessarily exist.
    Sec.   53.   Section   30-52  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:
    (a)  Every  permit  for  the sale of alcoholic
liquor shall specify the town and  the  particular
building  or  place  in  such  town  in which such
liquor is to be sold, and shall not authorize  any
sale  in  any other place or building. Such permit
shall also be made  revocable  in  terms  for  any
violation   of  any  of  the  provisions  of  this
chapter.  Notwithstanding  the  existence  of  any
local   zoning   ordinance   or   general  statute
prohibiting  or  affecting  the  establishment  or
removal  to  a new location of an alcoholic liquor
use within certain specified  distances  of  other
alcoholic  liquor  uses  of  the same or different
kinds, the department of [liquor control] CONSUMER
PROTECTION,  in  cases  of  hardship  and in cases
caused  by  reason  of  the  commencement  of   an
eviction  action  against  such permittee from the
particular  building  or  place   in   such   town
specified  in  such  permit, may endorse upon such
permit permission to the permittee to remove  from
one  building  or  place  in  any  zone to another
building  or  place  in  a  proper   business   or
industrial zone, and the permittee shall thereupon
be authorized to remove to such new location  with
such  permit.  The  applicant  for such permission
shall specify the building or place  to  which  he
wishes  to  remove,  and  such  new location shall
comply with all  other  provisions  of  the  local
zoning  ordinances  or  general statutes except as
hereinbefore provided; and such permittee shall be
allowed to move such permit premises only within a
radius of seven hundred  fifty  feet  of  the  old
permit   premises.   The  removal  of  the  permit
premises from the  particular  building  or  place
specified  in  the  permit without the approval of
the department shall be grounds for the suspension
or  revocation  of  the  permit.  In such cases an
appeal from an order refusing permission to remove
may  be taken in accordance with the provisions of
section 30-60. If the site of any permit  premises
is taken or threatened to be taken in the exercise
of the power of eminent domain, the department may
authorize  the  relocation of such permit premises
to a new location, any local ordinance or  general
statute   notwithstanding,   provided   such   new
location is zoned for business use and is within a
radius of seven hundred fifty feet from the point,
on  the  boundary  of  the  overall  site  of  the
proposed  taking,  nearest  to  the  site  of such
permit premises.
    (b)  Nothing in subsection (a) of this section
or  section  30-14a,   shall   be   construed   as
prohibiting  the  department  from  permitting the
removal of such permit premises to  any  location,
including  a  location  in  another  town, for any
reason, provided:  (1)  Removal  to  the  proposed
location   complies  with  local  zoning  laws  as
required  by  section  30-44,  (2)  the   proposed
location   is   not  found  to  be  unsuitable  or
prohibited by any other provision of this chapter,
except  that  a  removal  to a location in another
town  may  be  authorized  only  if  such  removal
complies  with  the  provisions  of section 30-14a
provided, in any  case  in  which  the  department
finds  that  the  permittee  has provided evidence
satisfactory to the department that the  permittee
is  unable to secure a renewal or extension of his
lease and that the premises are to  be  demolished
by  their  owner, and that the permittee is unable
to find,  after  reasonable  efforts,  a  suitable
location for removal of the permit premises within
the town in which the permit premises are located,
have  created a hardship, the department may waive
the maximum permit limit provided by said  section
30-14a   and  allow  the  removal  of  the  permit
premises to an adjacent town.
    (c)   Any   action  taken  by  the  department
authorizing the removal of  such  permit  premises
prior to June 27, 1985, is hereby validated.
    Sec.   54.   Section   30-53  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:
    Each   permit   granted   or  renewed  by  the
department of [liquor control] CONSUMER PROTECTION
shall  be  of  no effect until a duplicate thereof
has been filed by  the  permittee  with  the  town
clerk  of  the town within which the club or place
of business described in such permit is  situated;
provided  the place of filing of railroad and boat
permits shall be the office of the town  clerk  of

The fee for such filing shall be two dollars.
    Sec.   55.   Section   30-55  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:
    (a)   The   department   of  [liquor  control]
CONSUMER PROTECTION may, of its own motion, revoke
or  suspend  any  permit  upon  cause  found after
hearing, provided ten days' written notice of such
hearing  has  been  given to the permittee setting
forth, with  the  particulars  required  in  civil
pleadings,  the  charges  upon which such proposed
revocation  or  suspension   is   predicated   and
provided  no  permit shall be suspended or revoked
for any violation of this  chapter  of  which  the
permittee  or  his  servant  or  agent was finally
found not guilty by, or received dismissal  in,  a
court   having   jurisdiction   thereof,   and  no
disciplinary action shall be taken  thereafter  by
said   department   against  the  backer  or  such
permittee, servant  or  agent,  and  provided  the
department  shall not initiate hearing proceedings
pursuant to this section  based  upon  any  arrest
which has not resulted in a conviction. Any appeal
from such order of revocation or suspension  shall
be  taken  in  accordance  with  the provisions of
section 4-183.
    (b)    The   surrender   of   a   permit   for
cancellation or the expiration of a  permit  shall
not  prevent  the  department  from  suspending or
revoking  any  such   permit   pursuant   to   the
provisions of this section.
    Sec.   56.   Section  30-55a  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is

to pay  the  contributions  prescribed  under  the
provisions  of said chapter, suspend the permit of
such  employer  until  written  notice  from   the
administrator  has  been received that the returns
have been filed and the  contributions,  including
interest, have been paid.
    (b)  When  any permit premises where alcoholic
liquor is consumed on  the  premises  emits  noise
which,  when  measured  at a radius of two hundred
feet  from  the  premises,  as  described  in  the
permittee's   application  for  a  liquor  permit,
exceeds the ambient noise standard  for  the  land
use  classification for the location at which such
measurement  is  made,  as  established   by   the
department of environmental protection pursuant to
section 22a-69, the department of [liquor control]
CONSUMER PROTECTION may suspend the permit to sell
alcoholic  liquor  for  three  days  for  a  first
violation,  five  days  for a second violation and
fourteen days for any subsequent violation.

control]   CONSUMER   PROTECTION   may,   in   its
discretion, revoke or suspend his permit and order
the forfeiture of all moneys that have  been  paid
therefor,  and  such  revocation or suspension and
forfeiture shall be in addition to  the  penalties
for   such  offense.  In  all  cases  in  which  a
conviction is had, the clerk of  the  court  shall
forthwith  mail  a  copy  of  the  judgment to the
department.

statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:

    (a)  No holder of any manufacturer, wholesaler
or  out-of-state  shipper's  permit  shall   ship,
transport or deliver within this state, or sell or
offer for sale, any alcoholic liquors  unless  the
name of the brand, trade name or other distinctive
characteristic by which such alcoholic liquors are
bought  and  sold,  the  name  and  address of the
manufacturer thereof and the name and  address  of
each wholesaler permittee who is authorized by the
manufacturer or his authorized  representative  to
sell  such  alcoholic  liquors are registered with
the  department  of  [liquor   control]   CONSUMER
PROTECTION  and  until  such  brand, trade name or
other distinctive characteristic has been approved
by  the  department.  Such  registration  shall be
valid for a period of three  years.  The  fee  for
such  registration,  or  renewal thereof, shall be
one hundred dollars for out-of-state shippers  and
three  dollars  for  Connecticut manufacturers for
each  brand  so   registered,   payable   by   the
manufacturer or his authorized representative when
such liquors are manufactured in the United States
and    by   the   importer   or   his   authorized
representative when such liquors are imported into
the   United  States.  The  department  shall  not
approve the brand registration  of  any  fortified
wine,  as  defined  in  section  12-433,  which is
labeled, packaged or canned so as to appear to  be
a  wine  or  liquor  cooler, as defined in section
12-433.
    Sec.  67. Subdivision (1) of subsection (a) of
section 30-64 of the general statutes is  repealed
and the following is substituted in lieu thereof:
    (a)  (1) No out-of-state shipper, manufacturer
or wholesaler  permittee  shall  sell,  offer  for
sale,  solicit  any  order  for  or  advertise any
alcoholic liquor, the container of which  bears  a
label  stating  brand  or the name of the owner or
producer, unless a schedule of suggested  consumer
resale  prices  for each brand of alcoholic liquor
has been filed  with  the  department  of  [liquor
control]  CONSUMER PROTECTION and such schedule is
then in effect, except written permission for such
sale,  offer,  solicitation  or advertising may be
granted by the department for good cause shown and
for  reasons not inconsistent with the purposes of
this section and subdivisions (1),  (2),  (3)  and
(4)  of  subsection (b) of section 30-6a and under
such terms and conditions as the department  deems
necessary.
    Sec.   68.   Section  30-64a  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:
    Notwithstanding  any  provision of the general
statutes  or  any  regulations   issued   pursuant
thereto  to  the contrary, a wholesaler, who sells
any product or is authorized to sell  any  product
by  this  chapter, shall sell such product to each
retail permittee in  the  wholesaler's  geographic
territory  who  desires  to purchase such product.
Such  wholesaler  shall  not  charge  any   retail
permittee,  to  whom the wholesaler is required to
sell by virtue of this section, a  different  rate
for   the   delivery   or  transportation  of  any
alcoholic liquor than such wholesaler would charge
any  other  retail permittee. Where distance, road
conditions,  travel  time  or  any   such   factor
substantially  affects  the  cost  of  delivery or
transportation of a product sold by a  wholesaler,
the  wholesaler  shall file a schedule of proposed
delivery charges with the  department  of  [liquor
control]  CONSUMER PROTECTION. Such schedule shall
only apply after a hearing  by  and  upon  written
approval from said department.
    Sec.   69.   Section  30-64b  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:
    The   sale   of  any  alcoholic  liquor  by  a
wholesale or retail  permittee  for  off  premises
consumption  at  a price the intent of which is to
destroy or  prevent  competition  with  any  other
permittee holding a like permit shall be deemed an
unfair pricing practice. The department of [liquor
control] CONSUMER PROTECTION may suspend or revoke
any permit upon a finding  of  an  unfair  pricing
practice.   In   arriving  at  such  finding,  the
department of [liquor control] CONSUMER PROTECTION
shall   consider,  but  not  be  limited  to,  the
consideration of  the  following  factors:  Labor,
including  salaries  of  executives  and officers,
rent, interest on borrowed capital,  depreciation,
selling  cost,  maintenance of equipment, delivery

30-6a,  there  shall  be paid to the department of
[liquor  control]  CONSUMER  PROTECTION  by   each
permittee,  for  the  sale  of alcoholic liquor at
retail for  off-the-premises  consumption,  a  sum
equal  to  six  and  one-quarter  per  cent of the
prevailing   regular   permit   fees   for    such
permittees.  All  such  sums  shall be paid by the
department into the state treasury to  the  credit

violation of any provision of section 30-64 or  of
any  regulation  adopted  under  subdivisions (1),
(2), (3) and (4)  of  subsection  (b)  of  section
30-6a,  suspend,  cancel  or  revoke any permit as
follows: For a first offense,  not  exceeding  ten
days'  suspension of permit; for a second offense,
not exceeding thirty days' suspension  of  permit;
and  for  a  third  offense,  the  department  may
suspend, cancel or revoke the permit.
    Sec.   72.   Section   30-68  of  the  general

name  or  private  label,  shall be filed with the
department of [liquor control] CONSUMER PROTECTION
as set forth in section 30-63, but such wine shall
not be sold by a wholesaler to a retailer for less
than minimum base cost. Minimum base cost shall be
computed by adding the current  selling  price  of
wine  in  bulk  in California, as set forth in the
federal state market service news published by the
United   States  Department  of  Agriculture,  the
charges necessary for transportation and  delivery
of  wine in bulk into Connecticut, all federal and
state taxes and the  general  prevailing  cost  of
labels,  containers,  crowns,  caps and seals. The
wholesale prices  of  wine  not  bottled  in  this
state,  imported or domestic, whether sold under a

the  department  as set forth in section 30-63 but
such wine shall not be sold by a wholesaler  to  a
retailer   at   a   price   which   is  below  the
wholesaler's  cost.  "Cost"  shall  mean  (1)  the
invoice price from the supplier to the wholesaler,
(2)  all  transportation  charges  from  point  of
origin   to  point  of  destination  and  (3)  all
applicable federal and state taxes and duties.
    Sec.   73.   Section   30-76  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is

PROTECTION, sell all or part of his stock in trade
to  any  permittee authorized by law to retail the
kind of liquors  so  sold.  No  person  holding  a
manufacturer  or  wholesaler permit shall purchase
for resale alcoholic liquor except from  a  person
holding  a  manufacturer permit, wholesaler permit
or  out-of-state  shipper's  permit.  Any   person
convicted  of a violation of this section shall be
subject  to  the  penalties  provided  in  section
30-113.
    Sec.   74.   Section   30-77  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is

prohibit any common carrier, warehouseman or other
lien  holder,  or  any  officer acting under legal
process, or any insurance  company  that  acquires
the  same  as  the  result of fire, flood or water
damage, from exercising his or its right  to  sell
alcoholic  liquor  under a lien or such process or
such  acquisition,  with  the  permission  of  the
department.  The  provisions of this section shall
not apply to the delivery  to  a  permittee  under
this  chapter of alcoholic liquor which is legally
authorized. The provisions of this  section  shall
not apply to the shipment into this state of ethyl
alcohol intended for use or used  for  scientific,
mechanical   and   industrial  uses,  for  use  in
hospitals and public institutions,  for  medicinal
purposes   in   the   manufacture   of   patented,
proprietary,      medicinal,       pharmaceutical,

substituted in lieu thereof:
    All  alcoholic liquor which is intended by the

in  violation  of  law  shall,  together  with the
vessels in which such liquor is  contained,  be  a
nuisance.   The  department  of  [liquor  control]
CONSUMER   PROTECTION   may   dispose    of    any
intoxicating  liquor,  acquired in connection with
the administration of this chapter, by  public  or
private sale in such manner and upon such terms as
it deems practical and, in  cases  where  sale  is
impracticable,  by  delivering  it  to  any  state
institution which has use therefor.  All  proceeds
from  such  sale  shall  be  paid  into  the state
treasury to the credit of the general fund.

application,   or  pending  determination  of  any
appeal from any such decision of  the  department;
provided such application shall have been made and
filed with the department before the expiration of
his  former permit within the time and in the form
required  by  the  department,  and  provided  the
application  shall  conform  in all other respects
with the  restrictions  contained  in  his  former

following form on  one  occasion  when  each  such
person makes a purchase:
permittee of the Connecticut Department of [Liquor
Control]  CONSUMER  PROTECTION, that I am over the
permittee to sell or otherwise  furnish  alcoholic
beverages  to  the  undersigned. I understand that
title 30 of the  general  statutes  prohibits  the
sale  of alcoholic liquor to any person who is not
twenty-one years of age.
    I  understand  that  I am subject to a fine of
one hundred dollars for the first offense and  not
more  than  two  hundred  fifty  dollars  for each
subsequent offense for wilfully misrepresenting my
age for the purposes set forth in this statement.
    Such  statement once taken shall be applicable
both to the particular  sale  in  connection  with
which  such statement was taken, as well as to all
future sales at the same premises, and shall  have
full  force  and effect under subsection (b) as to
every subsequent sale or purchase. Such  statement
shall  be  printed  upon  appropriate  forms to be
furnished by the permittees and  approved  by  the
department of [liquor control] CONSUMER PROTECTION
and shall be kept on file on the permit  premises,
alphabetically  indexed,  in  a suitable file box,
and shall be open to inspection by the  department
of  [liquor control] CONSUMER PROTECTION or any of
its agents or inspectors at any  reasonable  time.
Any person who makes any false statement on a form
signed by him as required by this section shall be
fined  not  more  than one hundred dollars for the
first offense and not more than two hundred  fifty
dollars for each subsequent offense.
    (b)  In  any  case  where such a statement has
been procured and the  permittee  is  subsequently
charged   with  serving  or  furnishing  alcoholic
beverages  to  a  minor,  if  such  permittee,  in
proceedings  before any court of this state or the
department   of    [liquor    control]    CONSUMER
PROTECTION,  introduces such statement in evidence
and shows that the evidence presented  to  him  to
establish  the  age  of  the purchaser was such as
would convince a reasonable man, no penalty  shall
be imposed on such permittee.
    Sec.   78.   Section  30-92a  of  the  general
statutes  is  repealed  and   the   following   is
substituted in lieu thereof:

Any such person may convert  his  bottle  size  to
such  metric system for wine prior to such date or
for spirits and alcohol at any time,  provided  he
files   notice   of   such   conversion  with  the
department of [liquor control] CONSUMER PROTECTION
thirty  days  prior  to such conversion. No bottle
size converted to  such  metric  system  shall  be

bottling  or canning of alcoholic liquor which, in
any way, deceives or tends to deceive a  purchaser
or  consumer  of  such  alcoholic liquor as to the
nature, quality or quantity of  such  liquor,  and
all  advertising, labeling, bottling or canning of
alcoholic  liquors  shall  be  subject   to   such
regulations  as the department of [liquor control]
CONSUMER PROTECTION prescribes,  provided  nothing
