DIGEST OF SB 78 (Updated April 29, 2011 2:02 pm - DI 110)


Alcoholic beverage matters. Makes it a Class B misdemeanor for an alcoholic beverage permittee or an employee or agent of the permittee to recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally sell, barter, exchange, provide, or furnish another person who is or reasonably appears to be less than 40 years of age an alcoholic beverage for consumption off the licensed premises without first requiring the person to produce specified identification showing that the person is at least 21 years of age. (Current law makes it a Class B misdemeanor for an alcoholic beverage permittee or an employee or agent of the permittee to recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally sell, barter, exchange, provide, or furnish another person an alcoholic beverage for consumption off the licensed premises without first requiring the person to produce specified identification showing that the person is at least 21 years of age.) Urges the legislative council to assign to an existing study committee the topic of which state agency should have authority to control dangerous alcohol products. Provides that only the alcohol and tobacco commission may conduct random unannounced inspections at locations where alcoholic beverages are sold or distributed to ensure compliance with certain alcoholic beverage laws. (Under current law, an Indiana law enforcement agency, the office of the sheriff of a county, or an organized police department of a municipal corporation may also conduct random unannounced inspections.) Provides that the holder of a club permit for alcoholic beverages may designate as "guest day" or "guest days" three or fewer days in a month or nine or fewer consecutive days in a quarter. (Current law allows a holder of a club permit to designate one day each month as a "guest day".)
