to the same conditions as an original license and any additional 
conditions the Tribal Council deems appropriate.
    (b) A liquor sales license issued to a business establishment on 
Tribal Land operated by the Tribes, including without limitation Three 
Rivers Casino & Hotel and Ocean Dunes Golf Course, shall be valid so 
long as the Tribal business establishment on Tribal Land maintains a 
valid state liquor license from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission 
unless earlier revoked or suspended pursuant to CLUSITC 5-1-10 or 
surrendered by the Licensee. A business establishment on Tribal Land 
operated by the Tribes remains subject to all other applicable 
provisions of this Chapter, including all provisions applicable to a 
Licensee.
5-1-8 Special Event Liquor License
    An individual may request a special event liquor license for a 
special event or occasion of limited duration by submitting a request 
to the office of the Tribal Administrator for consideration by the 
Tribal Council. The Tribal Council may take action on a request for a 
special event liquor license, including imposing specific conditions on 
the license, at any regular or special meeting. Notwithstanding the 
foregoing, an individual requesting a special event liquor license 
under this section must also hold a state liquor license from the 
Oregon Liquor Control Commission, to the extent required under state 
law.
5-1-9 Appeal of a Licensing Application Decision
    (a) Should an applicant or Licensee disagree with a Tribal Council 
decision on an application for or renewal of a liquor sales license, 
the applicant or Licensee may request a hearing before the Tribal 
Council by submitting a written request for a hearing to the office of 
the Tribal Administrator not later than seven (7) days after receipt of 
the Tribal Council's decision. If an applicant or Licensee so submits a 
timely request, the Tribal Council shall provide reasonable notice to 
the applicant of a hearing date, time and

[[Page 23817]]

location, as well as the procedures to be followed at the hearing.
    (b) Following such hearing, the Tribal Council shall affirm, modify 
or reverse its initial licensing decision.
    Any denial of a liquor sales license or renewal of a liquor sales 
license is final. There is no further right of appeal.
5-1-10 Revocation or Suspension of License
    (a) Failure of a Licensee to abide by any provision of this Chapter 
5-1 and any conditions set forth herein or imposed by Tribal Council 
may result in revocation or suspension of the Licensee's liquor sales 
license by the Tribal Council, as well as the assessment of civil 
penalties in accordance with CLUSITC 5-1-13.
    (b) Prior to suspension or revocation of a liquor sales license, 
the Licensee shall have the right to a hearing before the Tribal 
Council. The Tribal Council shall provide reasonable notice to the 
Licensee of the hearing date, time and location, as well as the 
procedures to be followed. If the Tribal Council decides to revoke or 
suspend a liquor sales license, they will issue a decision in writing.
    (c) The decision of the Tribal Council on the revocation or 
suspension of a liquor sales license is final. There is no further 
right of appeal.
5-1-11 Sale or Service of Liquor by Licensee's Minor Employees
    (a) The holder of a license issued under this Chapter 5-1 or Oregon 
Revised Statutes Chapter 471 may employ persons eighteen (18), nineteen 
(19) and twenty (20) years of age who may take orders for, serve and 
sell alcoholic liquor in any part of the licensed premises when that 
activity is incidental to the serving of food except in those areas 
classified by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission as being prohibited 
to the use of minors. However, no person who is eighteen (18), nineteen 
(19) or twenty (20) years of age shall be permitted to mix, pour or 
draw alcoholic liquor except when pouring is done as a service to the 
patron at the patron's table or drawing is done in a portion of the 
premises not prohibited to minors.
    (b) Except as stated in this section, it shall be unlawful to hire 
any person to work in connection with the sale and service of alcoholic 
beverages in a licensed business establishment on Tribal Land if such 
person is under the age of twenty-one (21) years.
5-1-12 Warning Signs Required
    Any person or business in possession of a liquor sales license, 
which sells liquor by the drink for consumption on the premises or 
sells for consumption off the premises, shall post a sign consistent 
with Oregon law informing the public of the effects and risks of 
alcohol consumption during pregnancy.
5-1-13 Civil Penalties & Forfeitures
    (a) The Tribal Council may assess a penalty against any person who 
violates this Chapter 5-1, in an amount not to exceed one thousand 
dollars ($1,000) for each violation, provided, however, that a penalty 
assessed against a minor shall not exceed five thousand dollars 
($5,000).
    (b) Upon the assessment of a penalty, the person against whom the 
penalty was assessed may request a hearing before the Tribal Council by 
submitting a written request to the Tribal Council not later than seven 
(7) days after receipt of assessment. If the person against whom the 
penalty was assessed so submits a timely request, the Tribal Council 
shall provide reasonable notice to the person against whom the penalty 
was assessed of the hearing date, time and location, as well as the 
procedures to be followed.
    (c) If the Tribal Council upholds its decision to assess a penalty, 
the person against whom the penalty was assessed may appeal the 
decision to the Tribal Court, but only on the grounds that the decision 
was arbitrary and capricious or a violation of Tribal Constitutional 
rights. Such appeal must be filed with the Tribal Court in writing 
within fourteen (14) days following receipt of the Tribal Council's 
decision. The Tribal Court shall review without jury the decision of 
the Tribal Council. The person against whom the penalty was assessed 
has the burden of persuading the Tribal Court that the Tribal Council's 
decision is arbitrary or capricious or a violation of Tribal 
Constitutional rights.
    (9) In addition to assessing a penalty against any person who 
violates this Chapter 5-1, the Tribal Council may direct the 
confiscation of any alcoholic liquor sold or possessed by a person in 
violation of this Chapter 5-1. Confiscation will be treated the same as 
the assessment of a civil penalty in this section for appeal purposes. 
The confiscated alcoholic liquor shall be stored in a secure manner 
until the completion of any appeal. If the person does not appeal 
within the time provided, or if forfeiture is upheld by the Tribal 
Court on appeal, then the Tribal Council may sell the confiscated 
liquor for the benefit of the Tribes or may dispose of the liquor in 
any other manner they deem appropriate.
    (e) The Tribal Council hereby specifically finds that the penalties 
under this section are reasonably necessary and are related to the 
expense of governmental administration necessary in maintaining law and 
order and public safety on Tribal Land. All violations of this Chapter, 
whether committed by tribal members, non-member Indians, or non-
Indians, are civil in nature rather than criminal.
5-1-14 Tribal Sovereign Immunity/Liability
    Nothing in this Chapter 5-1 shall be construed to have waived the 
sovereign immunity of the Tribes, any tribal entity, department or 
program, or any tribal official or employee, except as specifically and 
explicitly described herein.
5-1-15 Severability
    If a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of this 
Chapter 5-1 to be invalid or illegal under applicable Federal or Tribal 
law, such provision shall be severed from this Chapter 5-1 and the 
remainder of this Chapter 5-1 shall remain in full force and effect.
5-1-16 Consistency With State Law
    The Tribes will comply with Oregon liquor laws to the extent 
required by 18 U.S.C. 1161.
5-1-17 Effective Date
    (a) This Chapter 5-1 shall be effective upon publication in the 
Federal Register after approval by the Secretary of the Interior or his 
designee.
    (b) Tribal Council may adopt amendments to this Chapter 5-1 and 
those amendments shall be effective upon publication in the Federal 
Register after approval by the Secretary of the Interior or his 
designee.
