Senate Bill 126 as amended and reported by the Committee on Judiciary would: (1) authorize the filing and payment of a non-refundable $100 filing fee and $250 license and annual renewal fee by a licensee of the Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Board, to obtain a delivery service license to transport and deliver, for personal use, beer, wine, or spirits, up to the volumes established, within a 24 hour period, to individuals in the state that are at least 21 years of age; (2) provide for criminal history background checks, paid for by the applicant, for certain applicants seeking licensure from ABC; and (3) authorize the ABC Board to promulgate rules to implement the provisions of the bill.

This bill could (1) increase receipts to the State General Fund, assuming the license fees are distributed in the same manner as other fees for licenses issued by the board; (2) increase receipts to the Education Trust Fund, State General Fund, the Department of Human Resources, the Department of Mental Health, and counties and municipalities, by an undetermined amount dependent upon the price of the regular and draft beer and wine and spirits sold and delivered; (3) increase receipts to the State General Fund, county general funds, municipal general funds, and other funds to which courts costs are deposited; and (4) increase the obligations of the State General Fund, district attorneys, and local jails by an undetermined amount dependent upon the number of persons charged with and convicted of the offenses provided by this bill and the penalties imposed.
