SB 705, as introduced, Hueso. Alcoholic beverages: imports.
Existing law, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act, which is administered by the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, regulates the importation of alcoholic beverages into the state.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes in those exemption provisions.
