BILL NUMBER:S2378

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to providing a
multiple event caterer's permit

PURPOSE:
To provide for a multiple event caterer's permit.

EXISTING LAW:
Current law requires caterers to apply for a separate
permit for each function.

JUSTIFICATION:
Under current law, Section 9R of the Alcoholic
Beverage Control Law provides that caterers must apply to the State
Liquor Authority for a permit each time that they wish to serve
alcoholic beverages for a function or occasion at a hotel.
restaurant, club, ballroom or other premises. Having to apply for a
permit for each function can be extremely burdensome for caterers who
make their living providing food and beverages at various locations.
This bill would facilitate operations for caterers, many of which are
small businesses, and would reduce the number of caterer's permit
applications which the State Liquor Authority would be required to
review.

Caterers with a multiple event caterer's permit would be required to
provide the State Liquor Authority with information, as specified by
the Liquor Authority, regarding each function or event that the
caterer plans to serve at least five business days prior to each
function or event. The annual fee for a multiple event caterer's
permit would be $250

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.3058 of 2009-10; S.7471-A of 2008.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
180 days after becoming a law.
