Alcoholic beverage control; delivery of wine and beer; permits. Restores to certain Virginia retailers the privilege of delivering wine and beer to their customers. Such privilege was removed as a result of recent federal litigation challenging the constitutionality of Virginia's ABC law. The bill contains technical amendments, including relocating the existing provisions concerning direct shipment of wine and beer (formerly 4.1-112.1) to the administration of licenses portion of ABC law as new 4.1-209.1.
