Alcoholic beverage control; records of retail licensees. Establishes that electronic records of retail licensees may be stored off site, provided that such records are readily retrievable and available for electronic inspection by the Board of Directors of the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority (Board) or its special agents at the licensed premises. The bill provides that in the case that such electronic records are not readily available for electronic inspection on the licensed premises, the retail licensee may obtain Board approval, for good cause shown, to permit the licensee to provide the records to a special agent of the Board within three business days or less, as determined by the Board, after a request is made to inspect the records.
