PUBLIC
BILL SUMMARY For SB20-213

HOUSE COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC HEALTH CARE & HUMAN SERVICES
Date Jun 11, 2020      
Location Old State Library



SB20-213 - Amended, referred to the Committee of the Whole


01:58:45 PM  

Representative Larson and Representative Roberts, co-prime bill sponsors, presented Senate Bill 20-213 to the committee.

The bill allows certain liquor licensees to sell alcohol as part of takeout orders and to deliver alcohol for consumption off the licensed premises.  The bill includes the following license types: beer and wine, hotel and restaurant, tavern, brew pub, club, vintner's restaurant, distillery pub, lodging and entertainment, fermented malt beverage on and off premises retailers, and manufacturers and wholesalers with an approved sales room.  

If the Governor has not declared a disaster emergency, licensees must have a permit issued by the Department of Revenue (DOR) allowing the takeout and delivery of alcohol; may not exceed limits on the amount of alcohol included in each order; and may not receive more than 50 percent of gross annual revenues from food and alcohol from delivered alcohol.  These restrictions do not apply if the Governor has declared an emergency.

The bill specifies parameters for who may deliver alcohol, and requires that the DOR promulgate rules for the takeout and delivery of alcohol, including the creation of a permit and permit fees.  The bill is repealed July 1, 2022.

02:00:52 PM  

Nick Hoover, Colorado Restaurant Association, testified in support of the bill. Stephanie Hicks, The Tavern League of Colorado, testified in support of the bill.  Mr. Hoover responded to questions from the committee.  Written testimony was submitted to the committee (Attachments A and B).
