AN ACT CONCERNING UNIVERSITY BEER, WINE AND LIQUOR PERMITS
SUMMARY: This act revises the requirements for obtaining university liquor permits, university beer permits, and university beer and wine permits.
It allows a holder of a university liquor permit, which allows the sale of all four types of alcoholic liquor (alcohol, beer, wine, and spirits), to sell in a building on or abutting a golf course under the care and control of an institution offering a program of higher learning that has been (1) accredited by the Board of Governors of Higher Education or (2) otherwise authorized to award a degree according to state law. Under prior law, a university liquor permit allowed sales only in a room under the care and control of the University of Connecticut Board of Trustees.
The act revises the requirements for university beer and university beer and wine permits. Under prior law, these permits could be obtained by institutions (1) offering a program of higher learning as defined by state law and (2) that have been accredited by the board of governors. The act also allows institutions that have been otherwise authorized to award a degree according to state law to obtain the permits.
