Kansas To Consider Change In Liquor Laws

KSCB News - January 19, 2012 3:17 pm

Supporters of a bill that would modernize liquor laws in Kansas are expected to introduce the measure to state lawmakers Thursday.

The bill would allow grocery and convenience stores to sell full-strength beer, wine and spirits. Liquor stores would also be able to expand their product lines to non-alcoholic items.

Nearly 3,000 businesses and grocery stores, along with chamber of commerce members, joined the Uncork Kansas movement. Advocates said rewriting the state’s liquor laws would give Kansas consumers more choices, while bringing more business to the sunflower state.

But opponents argue the measure will only force small business owners to close their doors.

Lawmakers failed to pass a similar measure last year.
