Amended in the House prior to passage, Senate Bill 134 seeks to limit penalties for violations relating to the sale of alcohol beverages to a visibly intoxicated or underage person that occur in a sales room for licensees operating a beer wholesaler, winery, limited winery, or distillery, or in a retail establishment, for licensees operating a brew pub, vintner’s restaurant, or distillery pub, by prohibiting the licensing authority from: 1) basing any fine on the estimated gross revenues of any manufacturing or wholesale activities of the licensee; and 2) extending any suspension to the manufacturing or wholesale activities of the licensee.
