The Sine Die is OML’s annual report featuring a legislative wrap-up of the bills that were enacted, defeated and vetoed. You will be able to access the full bill content in this report by clicking on the bill number. Sometimes the most challenging task is working to defeat bad legislation, but with your quick action alerting your legislators, OML was successful in doing just that on several pieces of legislation which are also included in this report.
The following information is being provided to assist your City Attorney in better understanding the pending changes to the sale of alcohol, effective October 1, 2018.

From Lisa Soronen at National League of Cities: In South Dakota v. Wayfair the Supreme Court ruled that states and local governments can require vendors with no physical presence in the state to collect sales tax. According to the Court, in a 5-4 decision, "economic and virtual contacts" are enough to create a "substantial nexus" with the state allowing the state to require collection.
Today, the U.S. Supreme Court by a vote of 5-4 overturned the Quill case which prevented the collection of sales tax on out-of-state vendors who had no physical presence in the state.
The League is assisting the ABLE Commission by sharing information to help alleviate a backlog of interim alcohol license applications. Currently, there are a number of pending applications that cannot be processed by ABLE until municipalities issue the applicant a Certificate of Compliance.
