ACTION NARRATIVE CHAIR NORMAN ROKEBERG called the House Rules Standing Committee meeting to order at 10:12:31 AM. Representatives Rokeberg, Coghill, Harris, Berkowitz, and Guttenberg were present at the call to order. Representatives McGuire arrived as the meeting was in progress. HB 240-BREWERY & BREWPUB LICENSES 10:12:39 AM CHAIR ROKEBERG announced that the only order of business would be HOUSE BILL NO. 240, "An Act relating to brewery and brew pub licensing." CHAIR ROKEBERG explained that HB 240 would allow an increase in gallonage for brewpubs, which have to have a beverage dispensary license and are allowed to brew and sell beer on the premise. 10:13:22 AM REPRESENTATIVE HARRIS moved to adopt CSHB 240, Version 24- LS0734\B, Luckhaupt, 4/29/06, as the working document. There being no objection, Version B was before the committee. CHAIR ROKEBERG then reviewed the changes encompassed in Version B, which include the addition of a provision in Section 1 that allows beverage dispensary licensees to provide free samples to the public and prohibits the municipality from prohibiting the aforementioned. On page 2, line 6, the amount allowed to be sold by a brewery is changed from "36 ounces a day" to "24 ounces a day". Furthermore, the language "dancing, electronic or other games, game tables, or other recreational or gaming opportunities on the premises" was added to Section 3(e)(1). "In other words, these are breweries not pubs," he said. 10:14:44 AM The committee took a brief at-ease. 10:17:11 AM REPRESENTATIVE HARRIS moved to report CSHB 240, Version 24- LS0734\B, Luckhaupt, 4/29/06, out of committee with individual recommendations and the accompanying fiscal notes. There being no objection, CSHB 240(RLS) was reported from the House Rules Standing Committee. 10:17:17 AM ADJOURNMENT There being no further business before the committee, the House Rules Standing Committee meeting was adjourned at 10:18 a.m., although the chair noted that the hearing on HB 13 and HB 362 remained recessed to the call of the chair.
