The House will Concur with the Senate Sub for HB 2223

02 Apr 2014 2:13 PM | Anonymous

2014 may claim the shortest conference committee on a liquor bill.  Today, the Federal and State Affairs conference committee met and discussed the Senate's additions to HB 2223 - originally the House bill to assist Kansas home brewers.  

After going over the contents of the bill, House Chairman Steve Brunk asked two questions - When a farm winery hosts a tasting in a liquor store, does the product have to be sold by the liquor store?  Yes.  When the Senate amended the citizenship provision of the Liquor Control Act, did you make any changes to residency?  No.  The House committee members - Brunk, Couture-Lovelady, and Ruiz - conferred for a few seconds and then agreed to the changes.

The House will vote on a motion to concur on Sub for HB 2223 to accept the bill as amended by the Senate Committee of the Whole.  

The bill is described at http://kansasretailer.org.  Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
