House Bill 414 — Liquor stores, sample tastings

House Bill 414 — Liquor stores, sample tastings

Parrish Miller
February 10, 2020

Bill description: HB 414 makes it possible for distilling companies to hold tastings at state liquor stores.

Rating: +1

Does it transfer a function of the private sector to the government? Examples include government ownership or control of any providers of goods or services such as the Land Board’s purchase of a self-storage facility, mandatory emissions testing, or pre-kindergarten. Conversely, does it eliminate a function of government or return a function of government to the private sector?

HB 414 establishes a framework through which a manufacturer or supplier of distilled spirits can conduct a tasting of their product or products at a state liquor store. This bill does not get government out of the business of selling alcohol. But it does give manufacturers and suppliers of distilled spirits a marketing opportunity they do not have under current law.
