(1) The board must adopt rules by January 1, 2016, that require each spirits retail licensee that is licensed to sell spirits in original containers to consumers for consumption off the licensed premises, to report to the board quarterly, any and all loss of spirits, due to theft, breakage, loss, or diversion. The report must include the amount of spirits that is stolen, broken, lost, or diverted by type of spirits, manner of loss, and retail value. Spirits retail licensees required to report under this section must report the retail cost of the loss of spirits.
