Section 34B of Chapter 138 of the General Laws, as most recently amended, is further amended by inserting after the second paragraph the following paragraph:
The Commission shall establish procedures to permit a licensee or agent or employee thereof to rely upon a valid license to operate a motor vehicle issued by another state. Any licensee or agent or employee thereof under this chapter who complies with such procedures shall not suffer any modification, suspension, revocation or cancellation of a license nor shall he/she suffer any criminal liability for delivering or selling alcohol or alcoholic beverages to a person under twenty one years of age. Any licensee or agent or employee thereof under this chapter who, in accordance with the procedures established by the commission, relies upon such a valid license for proof of a person’s identity and age shall be presumed to have exercised due care in making such delivery or sale of alcohol or alcoholic beverages to a person under twenty one years of age. Such presumption shall be rebuttable; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall affect the applicability of section sixty nine.
