BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:

Section 1. Amend Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 101, of the Delaware Code, by deleting Sub-Section (19) in its entirety and substituting in lieu thereof a new sub-section which shall read as follows:

"(19) 'Importer' means the person transporting or ordering, authorizing, or arranging the transportation or shipment of alcoholic liquors into this State, whether the person is a resident or citizen of this State or not, said person being permitted to sell said alcoholic liquors only to those persons licensed to resell alcoholic liquors, provided, however, that nothing contained in this definition shall be construed as prohibiting an importer from selling such alcoholic liquors to either an active owner of that business for that person's use and not for resale, or to a full-time, bona fide employee of that business for that person's use and not for resale; and provided further that nothing contained in this definition shall be construed as prohibiting an importer from selling "beer" in "half-barrel" or "quarter-barrel" containers to the holders of a personal license: The Commission may enact such rules regulating the sale of alcoholic liquor to active owners and employees of licensed importers as it deems necessary."

Approved May 4, 1993.
