Item 2
Bill Tracking, Additional Documents Chamber Status

Amend the bill by striking out the title and substituting the following:

‘An Act Regarding Sales Representatives Employed by Licensed Wholesalers’

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

Sec. 1. 28-A MRSA §1401, sub-§7,  as enacted by PL 1987, c. 45, Pt. A, §4, is amended to read:

7. Warehouses and sales representatives.   A wholesale licensee shall maintain a warehouse or warehouses within the State and employ one or more sales representatives, licensed under chapter 59, for the purpose of soliciting orders. For the purposes of this subsection, "sales representative" means an employee of a wholesale licensee whose primary duty is soliciting orders from or making sales to retail licensees.

Sec. 2. 28-A MRSA §1502, first ¶,  as amended by PL 1997, c. 373, §135, is further amended to read:

The sales Sales representatives , including those described in section 1401, subsection 7, shall apply to the bureau for a license disclosing the person, firm or corporation represented.’


This amendment replaces the bill and changes the title. The amendment provides a definition of "sales representative" as it applies to licensed wholesalers. It clarifies that the provision in current law that requires liquor sales representatives to be licensed by the Department of Administrative and Financial Services, Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations applies to sales representatives employed by licensed wholesalers.
