Bill Summary

Recent legislation (Senate Bill 18-243) terminated the licensing of retailers to sell fermented malt beverages (formerly known as "3.2 beer" but now including all beer) for consumption on and off a licensed premises, requiring the holder of such a license to combine its renewal application with an application to convert the license into either a license to sell for consumption on the licensed premises or a license to sell for consumption off the licensed premises.

The bill lifts the requirement to convert an existing license, and reinstates the availability of new licenses, in specified areas with low populations.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
