Alcoholic beverage control; food-beverage ratio. Reduces from 45 to 25 percent the requirement for mixed beverage restaurant licensees for the ratio of combined gross receipts from the sale of food consumed on the premises and nonalcoholic beverages served on the premises and the combined gross receipts from the sale of mixed beverages, food, and nonalcoholic beverages. The bill provides that gross receipts be calculated on the basis of the price that the licensee paid for the food, nonalcoholic beverages, or mixed beverages sold, rather than the price at which the licensee sells such items to consumers.
