BILL NUMBER:S356

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to purchasing by
two or
more licensed retailers

PURPOSE:
To allow for pooled purchasing by licensed retailers

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one of the bill provides for cooperative agreements so that
liquor stores may agree to jointly purchase larger, more cost
effective, quantities than would be possible without cooperative
agreements.

Section two of this bill provides an immediate effective date.

EXISTING LAW:
Each liquor store must make its own separate purchases

JUSTIFICATION:
Small liquor stores are unable to get the quantity discounts currently
available to larger liquor store. This would provide a way for such
liquor stores to remain competitive.

None.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediate.
