SB0314S01 - Alcoholic Beverage Amendments

State Government (UCA 36-12-13(2)(b)):
Enactment of this bill will shift approximately $2.9 million from the General Fund to the newly created Alcoholic Beverage Control Act Enforcement Fund in FY 2012. The Department of Public Safety is authorized to spend from the restricted special revenue fund without appropriation by the Legislature for increased enforcement costs. The amended bill also carries its own appropriation of -$2,642,900 million General Fund from the Department of Public Safety (DPS) and a one-time appropriation of $83,600 General Fund in FY 2012. The bill will increase restricted fund revenue by $367,100 from increases in existing fees. Additional Liquor Control Fund revenue may result from new fees established in this bill, but the amount of revenue per year is unknown at this time. The bill may cost the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control $85,000 from the Liquor Control Fund for one additional FTE in licensing and compliance. Liquor Control Fund revenue and expenditure affects annual transfers to the General Fund.
