This bill provides that a retail establishment licensed to sell alcoholic beverages for off-premises consumption may also be licensed as a Class A restaurant or an establishment licensed to sell beer and wine for consumption on the premises as long as alcoholic beverages are served as individual servings by an employee of the on-premises establishment. This bill repeals the existing dual liquor license provision in law.
