New Mexico Governor Signs Bill Allowing Alcohol Delivery

From KOB-TV:

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signedHouse Bill 255Wednesday afternoon, a bipartisan reform bill that will provide for home delivery of alcohol and make certain liquor licenses far cheaper, among other changes to regulation.

Alcohol delivery permits can be issued to retailers, dispensers, craft distillers, winegrowers, small brewers and restaurant licensees. State officials said identification checks will be mandatory for deliveries. 

The bill also lifts restrictions on alcohol sales that had been imposed solely on Sundays and prohibits the sale of miniature bottles of liquor for off-site consumption.

HB 255 also prohibits wine and spirit sales at gas stations in McKinley County, per an amendment from Sen. George Muñoz of Gallup.

State officials said liquor licenses will be more affordable overall and there will be a significant tax deduction, among other protections, for existing license holders in recognition of their investment.
