Explanation

The bill results in a minimal revenue gain associated with the ability of eligible institutions of higher learning to obtain a permit for alcoholic beverages under newly defined circumstances.

Annually, institutions of higher learning account for $4,880 in revenue to the state from liquor licenses. It is anticipated that additional revenue generated as a result of this bill would be minimal.

House “A” changes the eligibility of what constitutes an eligible piece of land or building for which a university beer, wine, or liquor permit may be obtained, and makes other minor changes, all of which have no additional fiscal impact.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to inflation and subject to the number of new university beer, wine, or liquor permits obtained, which cannot be determined at this time.
