Item 2
Bill Tracking, Additional Documents Chamber Status

Amend the bill by striking out everything after the enacting clause and before the summary and inserting the following:

Sec. 1. 28-A MRSA §1205, sub-§1,  as amended by PL 2009, c. 459, §2, is further amended to read:

1. Taste testing on off-premise retail licensee's premises.   Subject to the conditions in subsection 2, the bureau may authorize an off-premise retail licensee stocking at least 125 different wine labels or a fine wine store to conduct taste testings of wine on that licensee's premises. Any other consumption of alcoholic beverages on an off-premise retail licensee's premises is prohibited.

Sec. 2. 28-A MRSA §1205, last ¶,  as amended by PL 2005, c. 32, §1, is repealed.


This amendment replaces the bill. It removes any reference to a fine wine store with regard to taste testing of wine. It allows the taste testing of wine for any off-premise retail licensee that stocks at least 125 different wine labels.
