BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Retailers can now apply for a permit from the Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control to deliver beer, wine and liquor.

News outlets report the agency said Tuesday it’s now accepting applications. Permits could be issued as soon as early August.

Lawmakers passed legislation earlier this year allowing restaurants, grocery stores, package stores and third-party deliverers to bring alcohol to homes. The beverages must be transported in a factory-sealed container.

ATC Commissioner Juana Marine-Lombard says the main concern is making sure businesses continue to sell and serve alcohol responsibly.

Drivers will be prohibited from delivering to college campuses. Deliveries cannot be made outside the parish where the business operates.

Drivers will have identification scanners to verify the buyer’s age and receive the same alcohol training as bartenders and waiters.
