SB16-197 – Liquor-licensed Drugstores Multiple Licenses

This bill makes several changes to the laws related to the licensing of liquor-licensed drugstores and retail liquor stores. Beginning January 1, 2017, a liquor-licensed drugstore can obtain additional liquor-licenses under certain conditions. The bill creates a new liquor-licensed drugstore manager’s permit; liquor-licensed drugstores must have at least one permitted manager who controls alcohol beverage operations. Also, the bill allows the owners of retail liquor stores to sell non-alcohol products, as long as merchandise not related to the sale of alcohol does not exceed 20 percent of all revenues.
