SB1450 by Hancock (Relating to the delivery of alcoholic beverages from certain premises to ultimate consumers; authorizing a fee; creating an offense.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted

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. The bill would create an offense related to the delivery of alcoholic beverages.

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.

This analysis assumes the provisions of the bill addressing sanctions for criminal offenses would not result in a significant impact on state correctional agencies.

The bill would take effect September 1, 2019.

Local Government Impact

No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
