The License Appeal Commission (LAC) is the immediate forum of appeal for suspensions, revocations, and fines imposed by the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection against a liquor license holder. Additionally, the LAC handles appeals for denied liquor license applications, denied changes in management/ownership of an existing liquor license, and refusals of liquor license renewals issued by the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection.
