Payment of license and permit fees
SECTION 1. The 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"Section 61-1-110. The commission shall accept checks, in addition to any other method of payment it considers appropriate, in payment of the fees due for any license or permit it issues as provided by law. If the check is dishonored for any reason the commission may suspend the license or permit without notice or a hearing until the applicant makes the payment in a form satisfactory to the commission and pays a reinstatement fee of fifty dollars. The commission may retain the reinstatement fee in order to offset the cost of this provision."

SECTION 2. Section 61-3-1020 of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 39 of 1991, is further amended to read:
"Section 61-3-1020. Subject to Section 61-3-1030 no other goods, wares, or merchandise may be kept or stored in or sold in or from a retail alcoholic liquor store or place of business, and no place of amusement may be maintained in or in connection with the store. However, retail dealers may sell glassware packaged together with alcoholic liquors if the glassware and alcoholic liquors are packaged together by the wholesaler or producer in packaging provided by the producer. Retail dealers also may sell nonalcoholic beverages, other than beer, packaged together with alcoholic liquors if the nonalcoholic beverages and alcoholic liquors are in sealed packages and are packaged together by the producer.
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 29th day of June, 1992.
