2015 House Bill 4895

Senate Roll Call 149: Passed

To allow the owner of a retail store that has a liquor license and also has a separate gas station (as do many "big box" stores) to sell beer and wine under the same license at the gas station. The bill would limit this to retailers who maintain $250,000 worth of inventory, which is opposed by smaller retailers and supported by large ones and by the state-authorized beer and wine wholesaler cartel.
