AN  ACT  ESTABLISHING AN OUT-OF-STATE SMALL WINERY
SHIPPER'S PERMIT.


    Be  it  enacted  by  the  Senate  and House of
Representatives in General Assembly convened:
    (NEW) An out-of-state  small  winery shipper's
permit for wine  shall  allow  the sale of wine to
manufacturer  and wholesaler  permittees  in  this
state as permitted  by law. Any person who applies
for such permit  or for the renewal of such permit
shall furnish an  affidavit  to  the Department of
Consumer  Protection,  in  such  form  as  may  be
prescribed by the  department,  affirming that the
out-of-state small winery  which is the subject of
such permit did  not produce more than one hundred
thousand gallons of  wine during the most recently
completed calendar year.  The  annual  fee  for an
out-of-state  small winery  shipper's  permit  for
wine shall be  two  hundred fifty dollars. As used
in this act,  "out-of-state" means any state other
than Connecticut, any  territory  or possession of
the United States, the District of Columbia or the
Commonwealth of Puerto  Rico, but does not include
any foreign country.
