Senate Bill 1230 also creates a licensure process for the sale of tobacco at the retail level, and transfers the regulation of the distribution of cigarettes and other tobacco products from the Department of Taxation to the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. This amendment is contingent upon the passage of Senate Bill 1230.)
