 Section 23826.12 is added to the Business and Professions Code, to read:

 (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, in any county of the 24th class, the department may issue no more than a total of five additional new original on-sale general licenses for bona fide public eating places from January 1, 2014, to December 31, 2016, inclusive. To qualify for a license under this section, the premises upon which a bona fide public eating place is operated shall have a seating capacity for 50 or more diners.
(b) In issuing the licenses provided for in this section, the department shall follow the procedure set forth in Section 23961.
(c) This chapter does not prohibit a person who currently holds a valid on-sale general license for seasonal business from applying for an original on-sale general license pursuant to this section.
(d) A license issued under this section shall not be transferred from one county to another nor shall it be transferred to any premises not qualifying under this section.
SEC. 2.
 The Legislature finds and declares that a special law is necessary and that a general law cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique circumstances of the economy of a county of the 24th class, as specified in Section 1, that apply only to a county of the 24th class.
