BILL NUMBER:S3828 REVISED 4/25/13 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in relation to providing alcoholic beverages on credit PURPOSE: To permit wine and liquor retailers to extend store credit to customers SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends subdivisions 5, 6, and 7 of section 100 of the alcoholic beverage control law by removing the prohibition on selling, delivering, or giving away any alcoholic beverage on credit by retail licensees for off-premises consumption. Section two provides the effective date. JUSTIFICATION: Currently, a wine and liquor retailer may accept credit cards for payment of merchandise, but may not extend its own credit This is often problematic with large corporate customers or customers ordering for an event, since a retailer is not able to deliver the product and then send an invoice for payment. Customers are instead required to pay up front, in advance of delivery. By lifting this restriction, wine and liquor retailers can bill though the use of an invoice and operate in conformance with standard business practices.
