Bill #: LD 1525




This bill removes duplicative language regarding samples provided to the public by manufacturers licensed to produce wine, malt liquor and spirits in the State. The bill consolidates into one paragraph the provisions that govern the sale of a manufacturer's product for off-premises consumption to nonlicensees from the licensed manufacturer's facility. It also repeals and replaces in a separate subsection the provisions governing the authorization of a licensed manufacturer in the State to have a retail establishment licensed for the sale of liquor to be consumed on the premises, issued in accordance with the Maine Revised Statutes, Title 28-A, chapter 43.
