  • Chapter 120 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE SIMULTANEOUS HOLDING OF CERTAIN ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE LICENSES.

Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize forthwith the simultaneous holding of certain alcoholic beverage licenses, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.


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


Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 12, 19, and 19C of chapter 138 of the General Laws or any other general or special law to the contrary, a direct or indirect shareholder, member, general partner or limited partner of The Brew House Limited Partnership, a Massachusetts limited partnership, which holds licenses pursuant to the provisions of said section 19 or said section 19C of said chapter 138, may hold a direct or indirect interest in a corporation headquartered in the commonwealth which has significant operations in the commonwealth and which holds licenses pursuant to the provisions of said section 12 of said chapter 138. A direct or indirect shareholder, member, general partner or limited partner of any such corporation which holds licenses pursuant to the provisions of said section 12, may hold a direct or indirect interest in The Brew House Limited Partnership.

Approved October 16, 1997.
