An Act Regarding Licenses for the Sale of Liquor for On-premises Consumption
Emergency preamble. Whereas, acts and resolves of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and
Whereas, municipalities must be allowed to stop the sale of certain types of liquor in particular zones by summer; and
Whereas, in the judgment of the Legislature, these facts create an emergency within the meaning of the Constitution of Maine and require the following legislation as immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety; now, therefore,
Sec. 1. 28-A MRSA §1011, sub-§1, as enacted by PL 1987, c. 45, Pt. A, §4, is amended to read:
Emergency clause. In view of the emergency cited in the preamble, this legislation takes effect when approved.
This bill gives a municipality the option of conditioning its approval of a particular Class X liquor license on the exclusion of a type of liquor from sale by the licensee.
