Anyone who wants to sell alcohol at special events no longer needs a surety bond in the state of Colorado. The new bill is named SB 66 and abolishes the bond requirement for special event permits to sell alcohol. The previous law allowed the state licensing authority to require the permit holder to obtain a bond to guarantee their compliance with the law. SB 66 became effective August 10, 2011.
