§ 7.344. Long-term plan for the regulation of alcoholic beverages.

 (a)  The Council shall, by June 30, 1988, prepare and submit to the Governor a long-term plan for the regulation of alcoholic beverages following the transition period provided by §  7.342 (relating to phase-out plan). The long-term plan may provide for the issuance of additional numbers and types of private retail wine and liquor licenses or may provide recommendations for legislation to establish a new statutory wine and liquor control system.

 (b)  In developing a long-term plan the Council shall consider the advisability of issuing the following additional types of licenses.

   (1)  Incidental wine sales. The Council shall consider whether to provide for the issuance to qualified holders of restaurant, golf course, hotel and club liquor licenses of permits to make incidental retail sales of wine and wine products for off the premises consumption. The Council may develop and propose reasonable volume limitations for such sales consistent with the operations and activities of the permit holders.

   (2)  Wine sales. The Council shall consider whether to provide for the issuance to qualified applicants of permits to make retail sales of wine and wine products for off the premises consumption subject to the terms and conditions and additional requirements to be proposed by the Council acting on behalf of the Departments of Agriculture, Environmental Resources and Revenue.

   (3)  Retail liquor licenses. The Council shall consider whether to provide for the issuance to qualified applicants of permits to make retail sales of liquor and wine or wine only for off the premises consumption upon a demonstration that the applicant can satisfy the requirements of this order and any additional requirements established by the Council acting on behalf of the Departments of Agriculture, Environmental Protection and Revenue.

 (c)  The Council shall conduct public hearings and shall meet with liquor control officials of surrounding states to evaluate alternative methods for licensing the private sale of wine and liquor.
