Bill summary

House committee substitute amends the 1st edition as follows.

Repeals Section 2 of SL 2020-94, which provides for ABC permittees who are prohibited from operating under Executive Order No. 141 and who have paid renewal or registration fees prior to June 30, 2020, to request a refund of fees paid and provides for fee repayment within 90 days of the Governor rescinding orders prohibiting permittee operations. 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the date all executive orders responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and limiting the full operation of the permittee are rescinded or expire.

Regarding mandatory reinstatement of any ABC permits canceled or moved to inactive status due to the Commission's previous implementation of Section 1 of SL 2020-94, allows permittees to request refunds as provided above if the permittee has paid a permit fee for reinstatement or reactivation.

Changes the act's long title.
