  • Thank you! It is great to be here and I appreciate that I can speak with you today. I want to say thank you to Mike Brewington and Sheila Douglas for inviting me. Sheila I really appreciated your efforts on assisting me on the logistics for today. I would like to also recognize one of the commission members, who has been very supportive of what the agency has been doing. Thank you Greg N. Also, I want to thank all of you for being supportive and reaching out to our agency.
  • Today’s discussion will cover: The division’s four core functions as well as our role and purpose. What have we been working on Emerging issues that we are all facing, some industry specific and just an FYI for all of you. Answer any questions you may have
  • To license on- and off-premises retailers, manufacturers, brokers, wholesalers, distributors . Right now the division licenses and regulates and support over 10,000 businesses. To regulate the alcoholic beverage industry within the state of Iowa to ensure all laws and rules are being followed To distribute spirits to our customers – Class E liquor licensee’s - Over 700 right now. Education and outreach to our partners, customers, citizens, press, local governments and other others who have an interested in this arena.
  • My role is to ensure the mission is carried out. The staff at ABD is very professional, and over time there expertise will ensure that when you need us we are here t o help. Foster success by being the experts to assist all of you to get you the outcomes you require. 1a. To provide credible information, direction and assistance so that regulatory requirements can be carried out. 2. Level playing field within the alcohol industry, to equally apply Iowa laws 3. Return on investment by carrying out our responsibilities. 3a. Do all of these things as efficiently as possible How are we going to serve you? Go to sheet
  • Are we deleting this section?
  • Education Go to ABD promo and talk about the resources Education is the key ingredient to Increase voluntary compliance Protect the public heath from alcohol abuse. To get a better return on results without the gotcha mentality. Overall on partnerships, relationships and being a resource the agency can be proactive on issues before they become a burden to Iowa businesses or consumers. Do not want to hamper your business models.
  • 3. We have released both the technical and policy bills • Will email copies of those to Sheila 4. To ensure the outcome is in line with the intent of the legislation (for example: the high alcohol content beer now needs further definition in order to accomplish the intent) 4. To protect and maintain the three-tier system
  • 1. Crafting language to include no more than 1.5% alcohol by volume derived from added flavors and other non-beverage ingredients containing alcohol. 2. Convenience stores would be class E licensees. 3. Follow ad least period 4. Too many liquor stores?
  • These are additional emerging issues. Addressed in ABD’s prefiled bill. If passed, will follow current practices regarding the use of data. Delivery – working with interested parties to craft language that would permit licensees to home deliver beer, wine and spirits. Pushed by retailers. Would decrease penalties. ADD IN CURRENT PENALITIES FOR ALC AND TOBACCO! Beer and wine are already allowed to be auctioned for charity.
  • Infusing – want to be able to infuse spirits at the licensed premises. Two problems: 1. Must keep product in original container. 2. Cannot adulterate contents of a bottle. Alcohol donations – want to allow in-kind donations to non-profits for fundraising events. Donations would have to be made at the retail level as to ensure proper taxation. Restaurant association would like to have a representative on the commission. Law only allows for one industry member at a time. Currently Greg Nashleanas – who is with a beer wholesale company. If restaurants specifically had one, all industry associations would want one, which is not practical. Instead, all associations should be sure to attend commission meetings and feel free to contact commissioners. We are looking into providing an online alcohol training program similar to what we provide for tobacco. They want businesses who have a certified clerk make an illegal sale to get a “get out of jail free card” for first offense. This issue may go hand in hand with the lowering the penalties for alcohol sale-to-minor to match those for tobacco.
