01:39 PM -- HB 17-1084



Representative Melton, sponsor, introduced House Bill 17-1084. The bill creates a wine-expanded permit that allows a hotel with a valid hotel-restaurant liquor license to sell sealed containers of wine in the hotel's restaurant for consumption on or off the licensed premises. Permitted hotels must follow the same hour restrictions as other licensed retailers and may sell up to four 750 milliliter sealed containers per customer.



Wine-expanded permits may not be issued to hotels that have had a liquor license suspended or been subject to discipline in the last three years. The bill makes it unlawful for anyone with an interest in a restaurant within a permitted hotel to have an interest in more than four other permitted hotels with a wine-expanded permit.



The bill sets the state and local permit fees at $75 each per year, and allows the Liquor Enforcement Division (LED) in the Department of Revenue (DOR) to set the application fee.
