STATEMENT OE PURPOSE
THIS LEGISLATION IS A RESULT OF THE ALCOHOL LAWS INTERIM STUDY
COMMITTEE. Legislation was introduced in the 1998 session which
authorized a beer and wine catering permit for persons who hold
beer or wine licenses, but do not hold a liquor-by-the-drink
license. This concept was reintroduced to the interim committee and
seemed to meet the requirements of achieving consistency among
licensees. If a licensee holding one kind of liquor permit can be
authorized to provide catering services, it seemed consistent that
other licensees should also be authorized to cater the beverage for
which they are licensed.
