This notice publishes the Amended Seminole Tribe of Florida Alcohol Beverage Control Act of 2009, Ordinance No. C-01-09. The Amended Ordinance regulates and controls the possession, sale, and consumption of liquor within the tribal lands. The last amendment to the liquor ordinance was published in 60 FR 53431. The tribal lands are located in Indian country and this Amended Ordinance allows for possession and sale of alcoholic beverages within their boundaries. The Amended Ordinance contains provisions requiring the Tribe to issue licenses to all businesses that intend to sell liquor and it requires proof that the applicant for a liquor license is licensed by the State of Florida to sell alcoholic beverages as well. This Amended Ordinance will increase the ability of the tribal government to control the community's liquor distribution and possession, and at the same time will provide an important source of revenue for the continued operation and strengthening of the tribal government and the delivery of tribal services.
