LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 120, Roth. Intoxicating liquors.
Existing law makes it a misdemeanor to sell, or expose for sale, any intoxicating liquor within one mile of the entrance to La Sierra College in the City of Riverside, as provided. A person who violates this provision is subject to a fine of not less than $100, imprisonment in a county jail of not less than 50 days nor more than one year, or both that fine and imprisonment.
This bill would reduce that distance to one-half mile.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
