Alcoholic beverage control; customer service. Amends numerous sections in the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act to better meet customer expectations and improve agency customer service, including provisions that promote the use of electronic communication, facilitate electronic purchases and optional storage of electronic payment information, offer incentives to licensees, provide multiyear license options, and promote the collection and maintenance of accurate contact information for communications with licensees. The bill also removes provisions in current law that allow winery and farm winery licensees to sell cider to retail licensees approved by the Board for the purpose of selling cider and to persons outside the Commonwealth for resale outside the Commonwealth.
