An Act authorizing the town of Seekonk to grant additional licenses for the sale of all alcoholic beverages to be drunk on the premises.
 

              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

              SECTION 1.  (a) Notwithstanding the maximum number of licenses granted pursuant to section 17 of Chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority of the Town of Seekonk may grant up to twelve (12) additional licenses for the sale of alcoholic beverages to be drunk on the premises under section 12 of said chapter 138, provided, however, that such licenses are issued to establishments that hold a common victuallers license pursuant to section 2 of chapter 140 of the General Laws.

              (b) A license granted under this section shall not be transferable to any other person, corporation or organization for a period of three years from the date of original issuance or three years from the enactment of this legislation, whichever is later.  Any transfer in violation of sections (a) or (b) of this act shall render said license null and void.

              (c) If a license granted under this section is revoked or no longer in use at the location of original issuance, it shall be returned physically, with all of the legal rights and privileges pertaining thereto, to the licensing authority which may then grant the license to a new applicant only under the same conditions as specified in this act provided that the new applicant files with the licensing authority a letter from the Department of Revenue and a letter from the Division of Unemployment Assistance indicating that the license is in good standing with those entities and all applicable taxes, fees, and contributions have been paid.

              SECTION 2.  This act shall take effect upon its passage.
