 State laws relating to the interstate transportation of intoxicating 
                                liquor.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Twenty-First Amendment Enforcement 
Act''.

SEC. 2. SHIPMENT OF INTOXICATING LIQUOR INTO STATE IN VIOLATION OF 
              STATE LAW.

    The Act entitled ``An Act divesting intoxicating liquors of their 
interstate character in certain cases'', approved March 1, 1913 
(commonly known as the ``Webb-Kenyon Act'') (27 U.S.C. 122) is amended 
by adding at the end the following:

``SEC. 2. INJUNCTIVE RELIEF IN FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT.

    ``(a) Definitions.--In this section--
            ``(1) the term `attorney general' means the attorney 
        general or other chief law enforcement officer of a State, or 
        the designee thereof;
            ``(2) the term `intoxicating liquor' means any spirituous, 
        vinous, malted, fermented, or other intoxicating liquor of any 
        kind;
            ``(3) the term `person' means any individual and any 
        partnership, corporation, company, firm, society, association, 
        joint stock company, trust, or other entity capable of holding 
        a legal or beneficial interest in property, but does not 
        include a State or agency thereof; and
            ``(4) the term `State' means any State of the United 
        States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto 
        Rico, or any territory or possession of the United States.
    ``(b) Action by State Attorney General.--If the attorney general 
has reasonable cause to believe that a person is engaged in, or has 
engaged in, any act that would constitute a violation of a State law 
regulating the importation or transportation of any intoxicating 
liquor, the attorney general may bring a civil action in accordance 
with this section for injunctive relief (including a preliminary or 
permanent injunction or other order) against the person, as the 
attorney general determines to be necessary to--
            ``(1) restrain the person from engaging, or continuing to 
        engage, in the violation; and
            ``(2) enforce compliance with the State law.
    ``(c) Federal Jurisdiction.--
            ``(1) In general.--The district courts of the United States 
        shall have jurisdiction over any action brought under this 
        section by an attorney general against any person, except one 
        licensed or otherwise authorized to produce, sell, or store 
        intoxicating liquor in such State.
            ``(2) Venue.--An action under this section may be brought 
        only in accordance with section 1391 of title 28, United States 
        Code, or in the district in which the recipient of the 
        intoxicating liquor resides or is found.
    ``(d) Requirements for Injunctions and Orders.--
            ``(1) In general.--In any action brought under this 
        section, upon a proper showing by the attorney general of the 
        State, the court may issue a preliminary or permanent 
        injunction or other order to restrain a violation of this 
        section. A proper showing under this paragraph shall require 
        clear and convincing evidence that a violation of State law as 
        described in subsection (b) has taken place. In addition, no 
        temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction may be 
        granted except upon--
                    ``(A) evidence demonstrating the probability of 
                irreparable injury if injunctive relief is not granted; 
                and
                    ``(B) evidence supporting the probability of 
                success on the merits.
            ``(2) Notice.--No preliminary injunction or permanent 
        injunction or other order may be issued under paragraph (1) 
        without notice to the adverse party and an opportunity for a 
        hearing.
            ``(3) Form and scope of order.--Any preliminary or 
        permanent injunction or other order entered in an action 
        brought under this section shall--
                    ``(A) set forth the reasons for the issuance of the 
                order;
                    ``(B) be specific in its terms;
                    ``(C) describe in reasonable detail, and not by 
                reference to the complaint or other document, the act 
                or acts sought to be restrained;
                    ``(D) be binding upon--
                            ``(i) the parties to the action and the 
                        officers, agents, employees, and attorneys of 
                        those parties; and
                            ``(ii) persons in active concert or 
                        participation with the parties to the action 
                        who receive actual notice of the order by 
                        personal service or otherwise.
    ``(e) Additional Remedies.--
            ``(1) In general.--A remedy under this section is in 
        addition to any other remedies provided by law.
            ``(2) State court proceedings.--Nothing in this section may 
        be construed to prohibit an authorized State official from 
        proceeding in State court on the basis of an alleged violation 
        of any State law.''.
