NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: By the terms of KRS 243.490(1), this board may revoke a license issued to a licensee for violation of an act of congress relating to alcoholic beverages.

of Alcoholic Beverage Control of the Commonwealth of Kentucky shall accept
U.S.D.A. food coupons (or any other food coupon) in exchange for alcoholic
