SB1450 by Hancock (Relating to a permit authorizing the delivery of alcoholic beverages from the premises of certain alcoholic beverage retailers to consumers; authorizing a fee.), As Introduced
The fiscal implications of the bill cannot be determined at this time as there may be an unknown amount of revenue generated from the new fee authorized by the bill.
The bill would amend the Alcoholic Beverage Code as it relates to the delivery of alcoholic beverages by adding Chapter 57, Consumer Delivery Permits. The bill would require the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) to set the fee amount for a Consumer Delivery Permit and would require TABC to develop and implement a training program. According to the Comptroller of Public Accounts, the fiscal impact of the permit fee revenue cannot be estimated as the amount of the fee would be determined by TABC. TABC anticipates that the provisions of the bill could be absorbed using existing resources.
The bill would take effect September 1, 2019.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
