Senate passes legislation focused on shipment of alcohol and water permitting
House Bill 415, sponsored by Rep. Adam Koenig, makes improvements to a bill passed last year to allow the shipment of alcohol.
The legislation comes after the lessons learned from implementation and makes very small changes dealing with the use of fulfilment centers, out of state retailers, shipments to media to help with promotion, eliminating an antiquated policy that says if you have more than certain amount of alcohol in home you must be selling it, and other changes. House Bill 415 passed the Senate 29-5.
House Bill 386, sponsored by Rep. Chris Freeland, would allow for certain mixing zones for bioaccumulative chemicals of concern to allow companies to meet standards in an environmentally- friendly way as current regulations make it hard to do business. Freeland said the legislation is a good bill that makes it good for business without any harm to environment. The bill passed 36-0.
House Bills 415 and 386 now head to the governor after the final passage out of the Senate.
