Editors' Notes

Revisor's Note (Acts 2016, c. 41):
This section is new language derived without substantive change from former Art. 2B, § 2-101(c) and (b)(1)(ii) and (2)(ii) and, as it related to the fee for a nonalcoholic beverage permit, (b)(1)(i)1.
In subsection (b)(5) of this section, the reference to “pharmacists” is substituted for the former reference to “druggists or apothecaries” to use more modern terminology.
In subsection (d) of this section, the former term “canceled” is deleted as included in the meaning of the term “revoked”.
In subsection (e)(2)(i) of this section, the reference to a “charitable organization” is substituted for the former reference to an “eleemosynary” for clarity.
