LIQUOR CONTROL ACT-LIABILITY                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Liquor Control Act.  Eliminates the dollar  limits  on      
   recoveries  in actions against a person who sells (or, under specified      
   circumstances, provides) liquor to a person  who  becomes  intoxicated      
   and causes death, personal injury, or property damage.                      
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Deletes everything.  Amends the Liquor Control  Act.   Authorizes      
   an action for loss of society; imposes limits on recoveries for injury      
   to  person  or property ($55,000), loss of means of support ($65,000),      
   and loss of society ($65,000).  Effective immediately.                      
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1                                   
          HB 46, with H-am 1, fails to create a State mandate.                 
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Liquor Control Comm.)                           
          HB46, amended, will have no fiscal impact on the Commission.         
          JUDICIAL NOTE, H-AM 1                                                
          HB46, amended, would not increase the need for the number of         
          judges in the State.
