§ 3.142. Reporting.

 (a)  Current licensees or applicants for licenses that have management contracts shall file with the Board’s Bureau of Licensing (Licensing) on forms supplied by Licensing, the identity of all persons who are parties to the management contract.

   (2)  Facts upon which the Board could refuse a person’s involvement in the license which may include reasons specified in section 4-470(a.1) of the Liquor Code (47 P. S. §  4-470(a.1)) such as reputation, criminal history, and current or prior involvement in other licenses.
