AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE TOWN OF CLINTON TO GRANT AN ADDITIONAL LICENSE FOR THE SALE OF ALL ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES NOT 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 section 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority of the town of Clinton may grant an additional license for sale of all alcoholic beverages not to be drunk on the premises pursuant to section 15 of said chapter 138 to 1044 Main Street Clinton LLC located at 1044 Main street in the town of Clinton. The license shall be subject to all of said chapter 138 except said section 17.

(b)  The licensing authority shall not approve the transfer of the license granted pursuant to this section to any other location but it may grant the license to a new applicant at the same location if the applicant files with the licensing authority a letter from the department of revenue and a letter from the department of unemployment assistance indicating that the license is in good standing with those departments and that all applicable taxes, fees and contributions have been paid.

(c)  If a licensee terminates or fails to renew a license granted under this section or any such license granted under this section is cancelled, revoked or no longer in use at the location of original issuance, it shall be returned physically, with all of the legal rights, privileges and restrictions pertaining thereto, to the licensing authority, which may then grant the license to a new applicant at the same location under the same conditions as specified in this act.

(d)  All licenses granted under this act shall be issued within 1 year after the effective date of this act; provided, however, that a license originally granted within that time period may be granted to a new applicant under subsections (b) or (c) any time thereafter.

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