Department of Liquor and Lottery, Administrative Rules Update.

Vermont Proposed Rule: 22P037

AGENCY: Department of Liquor and Lottery

CONCISE SUMMARY: The rules adopted by the Board of Liquor and Lottery includes several groups of regulations to ensure public safety by preventing the misuse of alcohol and tobacco through controlled distribution, providing for applicable enforcement, and establishing robust education requirements. Several Acts as enacted by the Vermont Legislature in recent years have amended significant portions of Title 7, including the consolidation of the Departments of Liquor and Lottery.

As such, many contradictions between statute and regulation have emerged. Additionally, the impact of modern business practices is ever-changing, and regulatory agencies must remain agile to respond. This proposed rule removes General Regulations 9, 39, 44, 46, Advertising Regulation 2, Section 7, Wholesale Regulations 4, 5, and 7, and Education Regulations 4, 5 and 6. Many additional sections and regulations were updated, renumbered, and clarified.
