Sections 1 and 2 of the bill eliminate the liquor-licensed drugstore
license, effective January 1, 2025. All active liquor-licensed drugstore
licenses will convert to a fermented malt beverage and wine retailer
license on that date; except that a licensee with a single location may
choose to convert the liquor-licensed drugstore license to a retail liquor
store license. Sections 18 through 29 make conforming amendments to
account for the removal of the liquor-licensed drugstore license.
Sections 3 and 4 require fermented malt beverage and wine
retailers to display alcohol beverages for sale in a single location on the
licensed premises and prohibit fermented malt beverage and wine
retailers from selling alcohol beverages with greater than 14% alcohol by
Sections 5 and 6 expand on a wholesaler's duty not to discriminate
when selling products to retailers and allows the state licensing authority
to recover the cost of enforcing the anti-discrimination laws from a
person found in violation of the anti-discrimination laws.
Current law limits the amount of alcohol beverages certain
retailers can purchase from retail liquor stores, liquor-licensed drugstores,
and fermented malt beverage and wine retailers. Sections 7 through 17
remove the cap as it applies to retail liquor stores.
For the delivery of alcohol beverages:
  • Section 4 prohibits fermented malt beverage and wine
retailers from delivering alcohol beverages to another
person licensed to sell alcohol beverages; and
  • Section 24 removes the prohibition on a retail liquor store
delivering alcohol beverages to another retail liquor store.
Section 18 allows automated teller machine (ATM) cards
associated with public assistance programs to be used at ATMs in grocery
