Alcoholic Beverage Control, Administration
NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE
DAR File No.: 31275
Filed: 04/28/2008, 02:28
Received by: NL
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
In reviewing this 18-year-old rule, the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (DABC) staff is proposing it be removed because there is no statutory requirement that wine dispensing records be kept. The ABC Commission concurs.
Summary of the rule or change:
The ABC Commission has recommended that since the statute does not require licensees to keep wine dispensing records, this section should be removed.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
There will be no costs to state government in removing this section. If there are savings, they will be in time saved by DABC staff members who check dispensing records during their annual licensee audits. An actual dollar figure is unavailable.
None--Local governments do not regulate the dispensing of wine in licensed establishments.
small businesses and persons other than businesses:
Many licensed clubs and restaurants have fewer than 50 employees. Though it is difficult to calculate an exact cost of time spent maintaining wine dispensing records, the repeal of this requirement should save man-hours in these establishments. There is no apparent cost or savings to others.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
Many licensed clubs and restaurants sell wine. Though it is difficult to calculate an exact cost of time spent maintaining wine dispensing records, the repeal of this requirement should save man-hours in these establishments.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
This section has been on the books for many years. It was originally written at the end of the mini bottle era to create a control on wine sales. DABC staff and the ABC Commission have determined that since maintaining wine dispensing records is not mandated by statute and since wine is not dispensed through a metered dispensing system, there is no longer a need to require licensees to maintain dispensing records. The removal of this section will save licensees time, effort, and money. Dennis R. Kellen, Director
