Bill Caption

Relating to prima facie evidence of the intent to sell certain alcoholic beverages.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 2790 would repeal the section of the Alcoholic Beverage Code that considers it prima facie evidence (meaning evidence sufficient to raise a presumption of) of intent to sell if someone possesses one quart of liquor or more than 24 twelve-ounce bottles of beer in a dry area.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action supports HB 2790 for promoting the principles of individual liberty and limited government. This is a common sense bill that would repeal an outdated law which unfairly creates a presumption of intent to sell.
