Alcoholic Beverage Control, Administration
Type 5 Package Agencies
NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE
DAR File No.: 31330
Filed: 04/30/2008, 10:37
Received by: NL
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
This rule amendment is proposed to correct an omission in the Type 5 package agency rule.
Summary of the rule or change:
Wineries have aways been permitted to operate a package agency on their premises for the purpose of selling their products to persons touring the winery. This proposed rule amendment gives distilleries and breweries in the state the same privilege.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
None--The state does not require that alcoholic beverage manufacturers operate a package agency on their premises. There is no cost or savings to the state's budget by including distilleries and breweries to the list of those manufacturers that may operate a package agency.
None--Local governments do not regulate the day-to-day operations of package agencies. The passage of this proposed amendment will have no fiscal impact on local governments.
small businesses and persons other than businesses:
Local alcoholic beverage manufacturers in the State of Utah are virtually all operated as small businesses. The ability for distilleries and breweries to operate package agencies on their premises should bring in revenues that help their bottom line. Patrons touring these facilities will save time by having the convenience of being able to purchase the the spirits and heavy beers without having to make a trip to a liquor store.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
There are no actual compliance costs to this proposed rule amendment since manufacturers are not required to maintain a package agency on the premises. If the manufacturer chooses to apply for the package agency privilege, there may be some logistical costs in placing the package agency within their establishment. These costs will likely be offset by the revenues from the sale of their products.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
Utah's wineries have always enjoyed the privilege to sell their products to individuals who tour their production facilities. It is only fair that distilleries and breweries have the same opportunity. It is hoped that this rule will have a positive fiscal impact on the small alcoholic beverage manufacturers who choose to take advantage of it, and that it will add convenience for the citizens who tour these facilities.
