Enacts new refund provisions, allowing for any ABC permittee to request a refund from the ABC Commission (Commission) if the permittee is prohibited from operating under Executive Order No. 141, or subject to any COVID-19 executive order limiting its full operation, and has paid renewal or registration fees for 2020-21. Requires written request, which may be electronic, and mandates granting requests regardless of whether the permittee is operating at limited capacity. Requires repayment of the fee within 90 days after the date all executive orders responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and limiting the full operation of the permittee are rescinded or expire.
