Alcohol, licenses, theaters
ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES – Amends existing law to provide an exemption from a certain requirement and to provide a requirement for a license issued to a theater.

RS30739 / S1194

This legislation makes two changes to existing Idaho law regarding actual use of liquor licenses. First, it protects taxpayer assets by allowing cities that acquire a liquor license up to three years before they must put the liquor license into actual use. Second, it allows historic theatres to be compliant with actual use requirements if the theatre offers and sells alcohol at least twice a calendar year.

This legislation will have no impact on the general fund because it does not impose any additional requirements on Alcohol Beverage Control or the Idaho Liquor Division, nor does it change the fee structure related to liquor licenses.
