Alcoholic beverage control; wine wholesaler; primary area of responsibility. Removes the provision that describes the "primary area of responsibility" of a wine wholesaler that enters into an agreement with a winery to sell its wine in a certain sales territory. The bill provides that its provisions shall not render valid the provision of any contract that was entered into prior to July 1, 2018, and that was void under the law in effect prior to July 1, 2018. This bill is identical to SB 174. Read the Bill »
