Description

The commission shall assess and collect annual fees from all holders of a certificate, permit or license issued by the commission. Fees should be set to cover the costs of administration and the commission shall review fees to ensure they are allocated fairly among license holders. In assessing a fee the commission may not overly penalize any segment of the alcoholic beverage industry or impose an undue hardship on small businesses.
