HB482 by Geren (Relating to allowing the holder of a brewpub license to sell ale and malt liquor to certain wholesalers.), As Engrossed
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Alcoholic Beverage Code to allow a brewpub license holder to sell ale and malt liquor to certain wholesalers as described in the bill. The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and Comptroller of Public Accounts (CPA) indicate the bill would have no significant fiscal impact to the State. The CPA also reports the bill's provisions could result in additional excise and sales tax revenue collections, but that the amounts would likely not be substantial. The bill would take effect immediately upon receiving a two-thirds majority vote in each house, otherwise the bill would take effect September 1, 2015.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
