  2.  Except as provided in subsection 3 of this section, all provisions of the liquor control law and the ordinances, rules and regulations of the incorporated city, or the unincorporated area of any county, in which is located the premises in which such function, occasion or event is held shall extend to such premises and shall be in force and enforceable during all the time that the permittee, its agents, servants, employees, or stock are in such premises.  This temporary permit shall allow the sale of intoxicating liquor in the original package.

  3.  Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, any caterer who possesses a valid state and valid local liquor license may deliver alcoholic beverages in the course of his or her catering business.  A caterer who possesses a valid state and valid local liquor license need not obtain a separate license for each city the caterer delivers in, so long as such city permits any caterer to deliver alcoholic beverages within the city.

  4.  To assure and control product quality, wholesalers may, but shall not be required to, give a retailer credit for intoxicating liquor with an alcohol content of less than five percent by weight delivered and invoiced under the catering permit number, but not used, if the wholesaler removes the product within seventy-two hours of the expiration of the catering permit issued pursuant to this section.
