Awaiting consideration in Committee
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 4 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO ALCOHOLIC LIQUORS.
Under current Delaware law a license to sell alcohol may be subject to revocation or suspension by the Commissioner of Alcoholic Beverage Control or criminal charges for selling alcohol to a minor. This is so even though the licensee is not directly involved in the sale and may have taken significant steps to prevent such activity by employees. This bill updates the current law to provide for a system of fines for a licensee when alcohol is sold to a minor and removes the current authority to revoke or suspend a license under these circumstances. It does not change current law with respect to repercussions for an individual actually carrying out the sale.
Takes effect upon being signed into law
