01:36 PM -- HB 17-1120



Representative Singer called the meeting to order and commented on committee procedures.



Representative Willet, prime sponsor, presented House Bill 17-1120 to the committee. The bill allows an institution of higher education that holds a hotel-restaurant license to serve alcohol beverages for on-premises consumption (licensee) to be designated as a campus liquor complex at the time of initial licensure or license renewal. The licensee must designate a principal licensed premises and additional related facilities. The bill defines a related facility as an area approved by licensing authorities that is on the campus of a licensed institution of higher education and owned or controlled by the institution.



The licensee may apply for a related facility permit for each related facility within the campus at any time and must designate a manager for the campus liquor complex and each related facility. Each related facility must:

      • be clearly identified within the boundaries of the campus, including the point of service and each area where alcohol beverages are consumed must be identified by a description and map of the area; and
      • remain under the control of the licensee.

If control of the facility changes and licensing authorities are not notified, the campus liquor complex and associated permits may be revoked, denied, or suspended. For each related facility permit, the bill sets the annual state fee at $75, and the annual local fee at $100. The bill specifies that each related facility is considered a separate entity for the purposes of enforcing rules and laws, and assessing penalties.



Representative Willet commented on the fiscal note.
