Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill allows counties to authorize the manufacture and distribution of distiled spirits within their jurisdiction via the adoption of an ordinance or resolution.  Counties may determine the location of the distillery.  Under current law distilleries are subject to the same laws governing hard liquor package sales which require the county adopt a resolution, a petition be signed by 35% of all registered voters, and adoption of a public referendum.
