Here's where you get into a gray area.  I think a statement about our 
Kingdom's alcohol policy is to be published in the new version of 
Kingdom Law. However, I believe our kingdom law has always 
deferred to to Corpora and corporate governing documents in things 
like this.  In this instance, the only place corporate states policy 
on this subject is in the Treasurer's Handbook.  This was 
obviously a matter of some concern, as the BoD is now ruling on 
that very subject.  

The fact that these rules are so largely inaccessible is kind of a 
problem, and that's why groups that violate the rule haven't been 
penalized in any way (just gently informed).   

In the interest of C-our-A, I'd like to point out that in this 
kingdom, a treasurer is required to attend a treasurer's class (where 
rules like this should be taught) to become a fully warranted 
officer.  The longest anyone can hold the position unwarranted 
(acting) is 30-90 days, depending on individual circumstances. 
Occasionally, however, someone misses taking the class and 
signs a check to pay for something that isn't allowable.   

In short, it's not surprising you haven't heard of the rule.  
However, any treasurer signing checks to cover items with SCA funds 
*should* know these guidelines.
