House Commerce Committee Public Hearing:  County Option HB 2200

1:30 pm - Kansas Statehouse Room 346-S - BE THERE!

The House Commerce Committee plans to meet on Monday and hold a limited public hearing on adding county option to HB 2200 - the Big Box Liquor bill.  The structured hearing will allow 10 minutes testimony from proponents and opponents, then the House Commerce Committee will have the option of adding county option language to HB 2200.  

More than one House member has told us that they are disappointed at the lack of phone calls and emails they are receiving from opponents to Uncork.  These are legislators who support us, but they want to hear from the public!   Some are rural legislators who know their retailers personally, but tell me they haven't heard from them since shopping in December.  Let's get busy! 

It is very important to know if your representative and senator will support Uncork with either of these amendments.  If legislators maintain their opposition to Big Box Liquor, SB 298 and HB 2200 could remain in committee.

Please speak to your senator and representative and ask if they are planning for vote for or against Uncork with these amendments.  

Please generate as many calls and emails to representatives and senators as you can over the next week from employees, family, vendors, peers, and neighbors!  The hotline is open and operates during business hours:
