Chapter 4 ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES*
Section 4-3 Same--Qualifications of applicant.
(a) No individual shall be granted a
license under this chapter unless the individual is of
good moral character, or, in the case of a corporation or limited liability company, whose
managing officer or manager in charge of the business to be licensed is of good moral character.
In determining whether an individual is of good moral character, the individuals reputation in
the community and criminal history may be considered.

individual or managing officer who has ever had a
permit or license revoked under the liquor laws of any state or who employs in the licensed
business any person whose permit or license has been revoked under the liquor laws of any state.
(c) No person shall be granted a license
to sell intoxicating liquor or nonintoxicating beer
unless the person is a taxpaying citizen of the state.

shall be denied, suspended, revoked or otherwise
affected based solely on the fact that an employee of the licensee has been convicted of a felony
unrelated to the manufacture or sale of intoxicating liquor so long as any such employee does not
directly participate in retail sales of intoxicating liquor. Each employer shall report the identity
any employee convicted of a felony to the business services administrator.
(e) No person shall be denied a license
or renewal of a license issued under this chapter
solely due to a conviction for unlawful sale or supply to a minor when serving in the capacity as
an employee of a licensed establishment.
