Alcohol delivery wins a final legislative OK

Alcohol delivery wins a final legislative OK

  • Updated

PIERRE | If the governor agrees, businesses could deliver alcohol orders of $150 or more to customers in their communities starting this summer in South Dakota.

The state House of Representatives voted 66-2 Tuesday to allow the service. No one spoke against it.

Customers would still have to make the purchases in the stores beforehand.

“You pay on-site,” Rep. Herman Otten, R-Lennox, said.

The legislation would require delivery by an employee of the licensee who is at least age 21. Someone at least age 21 would have to sign for the delivery and present a photo ID.

Retailers and other beer and liquor sellers supported Senate Bill 143.

The House vote marked final legislative approval. The Senate adopted it 34-0 on Feb. 16. The bill now goes to Gov. Dennis Daugaard. If he signs it into law, it would take effect July 1.
