An Act Concerning the Issuance of a Temporary Liquor License

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

     Sec. 1. 28-A MRSA §653, sub-§1, as amended by PL 2001, c. 500, §1, is further amended to read:

     1. Hearings. The municipal officers or, in the case of unincorporated places, the county commissioners of the county in which the unincorporated place is located, shall may hold a public hearing for the consideration of applications for new on-premise on-premises licenses and applications for transfer of location of existing on-premise on-premises licenses. The municipal officers or county commissioners may hold a public hearing for the consideration of requests for renewal of licenses, except that when an applicant has held a license for the prior 5 years and a complaint has not been filed against the applicant within that time, the applicant may request a waiver of the hearing.

     Sec. 2. 28-A MRSA §1051, sub-§2-A is enacted to read:

     2-A. Temporary license upon transfer of ownership. An applicant applying for a new license, in accordance with subsection 2, resulting from the transfer of ownership of an existing on-premises license may simultaneously apply to the bureau for a temporary on-premises license. The bureau may issue a temporary license upon application unless the municipal officers or county commissioners notify the bureau of their objection to the issuance of the license. A temporary license issued in accordance with this subsection is valid from the date it is issued until a decision is made on the application for an annual on-premises license or for 60 days, whichever is shorter. The fee for a temporary license issued under this subsection is $100.

Effective September 13, 2003, unless otherwise indicated.
