ISSUE: Should more flexibility be given to licensees that need to place their quota licenses in a non-active status.
DISCUSSION: The current statute and administrative rule conflict with one another, creating much confusion at the agency level and throughout the licensed industry. A change in the statute will give more flexibility to place licenses into escrow. Quota licenses are required to be active a certain number of days per calendar year.
POSITION: The Florida Retail Federation will work toward more flexibility with the escrowing of quota alcoholic beverage licenses.
