House Bill 284
149th General Assembly (2017 - 2018)
The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 4 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE REMOVAL OF PARTIALLY CONSUMED ALCOHOLIC LIQUORS FROM A PREMISE.
This Bill would allow all on-premises licensees who sell a bottle of alcohol (other than beer) to place a cap on the bottle and allow patrons to take it home with them for consumption later. Delaware was one of the first states to recognize that it was important that patrons who purchase a bottle of wine have the opportunity to take the remainder of the bottle home with them rather than face the choice of drinking more than they should and driving, or leaving part of the bottle they had paid for at the premise.
