"AN ACT CONCERNING ALCOHOLIC LIQUOR PERMITS. "

Strike everything after the enacting clause and substitute the following in lieu thereof:

"Section 1. Subsection (a) of section 30-16 of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective from passage):

(a) A manufacturer permit shall allow the 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 may be permitted by law; but no such permit shall be granted unless the place or the plan of the place of manufacture has received the approval of the Department of Consumer Protection. Such permit shall authorize the selling at retail from the premises of sealed bottles and sealed jars of spirits distilled on the premises for consumption off the premises, provided the holder of the manufacturing permit produces not more than ninety-five thousand gallons of spirits on the premises annually. Selling at retail from the premises of sealed bottles and sealed jars of spirits distilled on the premises for consumption off the premises shall be at a price at or above the posted bottle price established pursuant to subsections (a) and (b) of section 30-68m, shall comply with the provisions of subsection (d) of section 30-91, as amended by this act, and shall permit not more than two and one-quarter liters of spirits distilled on the premises to be sold to any person on any day on which such sale is authorized under the provisions of said subsection. 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 eight hundred fifty dollars.

Sec. 2. Subsection (d) of section 30-91 of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective from passage):

(d) The sale or dispensing of alcoholic liquor in places operating under package store permits, drug store permits, manufacturer permits, manufacturer permits for beer, manufacturer permits for beer and brew pubs or grocery store beer permits shall be unlawful on Thanksgiving Day, New Year's Day or Christmas; and such sale or dispensing of alcoholic liquor in places operating under package store permits, drug store permits, manufacturer permits, manufacturer permits for beer, manufacturer permits for beer and brew pubs and grocery store beer permits shall be unlawful on Sunday before ten o'clock a. m. and after five o'clock p. m. and on any other day before eight o'clock a. m. and after nine o'clock p. m. It shall be unlawful for the holder of a manufacturer permit for a brew pub to sell beer for consumption off the premises on the days or hours prohibited by this subsection. Any town may, by a vote of a town meeting or by ordinance, reduce the number of hours during which such sale shall be permissible.

Sec. 3. Section 30-35b of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective from passage):

A ninety-day provisional permit shall allow the retail sale or manufacture of alcoholic liquor by any applicant and his backer, if any, who has made application for a liquor permit pursuant to section 30-39 and may be issued at the discretion of the Liquor Control Commission. If said applicant or his backer, if any, causes any delay in the investigation conducted by the Department of Consumer Protection pursuant to said section, the ninety-day provisional permit shall cease immediately. Only one such permit shall be issued to any applicant and his backer, if any, for each location of the club or place of business which is to be operated under such permit and such permit shall be nonrenewable but may be extended due to delays not caused by the applicant. The fee for such ninety-day permit shall be five hundred dollars. "
