An Act To Facilitate Weekend Malt Liquor Purchases by Licensed Establishments
Sec. 1. 28-A MRSA §1201, sub-§3-B is enacted to read:
Sec. 2. Rulemaking. The Department of Administrative and Financial Services, Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations shall, as soon as practicable, amend its rule Chapter 101: Operation and Control of All Licensed Premises, section 15 to permit on-premises retail licensees to purchase malt liquor from off-premises retail licensees during weekend hours in accordance with the Maine Revised Statutes, Title 28-A, section 1201, subsection 3-B.
This bill permits retailers licensed for the sale of malt liquor to be consumed on the premises to purchase malt liquor from retailers licensed for the sale of malt liquor to be consumed off of the premises during weekend hours, when wholesalers and distributors are typically closed.
