Rulemaking related to retail alcohol licenses

The Alcoholic Beverages Division hereby amends Chapter 1, "Organization and Operation," Chapter 4, "Liquor Licenses—Beer Permits—Wine Permits," Chapter 5, "License and Permit Division," and Chapter 8, "Transportation and Warehouse"; rescinds Chapter 17, "Class 'E' Liquor Control Licenses"; and amends Chapter 18, "Public Records and Fair Information Practices," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rulemaking

This rulemaking is adopted under the authority provided in Iowa Code section 123.10.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rulemaking implements, in whole or in part, 2022 Iowa Acts, Senate File 2374.

Purpose and Summary

The amendments to these rules, which are now administered by the Department of Revenue (Department), are in response to 2022 Iowa Acts, Senate File 2374. The legislation revised alcoholic beverage license and permit classifications and fees, removed the additional privilege of Sunday sales, removed the $5,000 bond requirement for wine direct shipper permittees that are not native wineries, and removed the 100,000-proof gallon production cap on native distilleries.

Additionally, this rulemaking aligns with current agency practices by updating the methods of payment accepted by class "E" retail alcohol licensees for alcoholic liquor, and also by promoting the Department's electronic licensing system for license transfers, bond endorsement, and wine gallonage tax report filing requirements. The amendments also eliminate outdated and redundant language instances, including where rule language is duplicative of statutory language. Other nonsubstantive clarifying amendments are also made.

Public Comment and Changes to Rulemaking

Notice of Intended Action for this rulemaking was published in the Iowa Administrative Bulletin on July 26, 2023, as ARC 7049C. Public hearings were held on August 15, 2023, at 2 p.m. and August 16, 2023, at 9 a.m., both in the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division Boardroom and via video/conference call. No one attended the public hearings. No public comments were received.

Based on an informal comment from an external stakeholder and further review, the following changes from the Notice have been made:

1.Revised subparagraph 4.2(4)"b"(8) by not adopting the change of inserting language referencing certificate of compliance holders since that is not a classification pertaining to 185—Chapter 4. Also, the word "permittee" has been stricken because Iowa Code section 123.39(1)"b"(3) only applies to retail alcohol licensees.

2.Revised rule 185—4.4(123) by not adopting the change of inserting language referencing certificate of compliance holders since that is not a classification pertaining to 185—Chapter 4.

3.Amended renumbered subrule 4.7(5) to remove the redundant language regarding miniature liquor bottles during the holiday season and also to provide clarity that mixed drinks or cocktails are allowed to be removed from a retail alcohol licensee's licensed premises pursuant to Iowa Code section 123.49(2)"d"(3). Additionally, language was stricken regarding containers of beer being taken off of a licensed premises because the statutory authority under Iowa Code section 123.131 was repealed under 2022 Iowa Acts, Senate File 2374.

4.Amended rule 185—4.11(123) to add the new special class "C" retail native wine license where applicable, which was created by 2023 Iowa Acts, House File 677. The rule implementation sentence was also amended to include Iowa Code section 123.31C as enacted by 2023 Iowa Acts, House File 677.
