An Act Regarding the Number of Agency Liquor Store Licenses Permitted in a Municipality
Sec. 1. 28-A MRSA §453, sub-§2-A, as repealed and replaced by PL 2015, c. 494, Pt. A, §31, is amended to read:
Nothing in this subsection may be construed to reduce the number of agency liquor stores the bureau may license in a municipality as of June 30, 2009.
This bill allows the Department of Administrative and Financial Services, Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations to license up to 11 agency liquor stores in a municipality with a population over 60,000. Under current law, the maximum number of agency liquor stores that may be licensed in a municipality with a population over 45,000 is 10.
