S4 Sanford started this petition to Representative David Scott and

    Considering today's circumstances while looking to the future, we congratulate the success of House Bill 879 that includes the delivery of wine and beer to consumers during COVID-19. However, the problem is that this bill excludes Local Package stores. Understanding they are deemed essential so consumers can still purchase, it still limits some consumers and places others who choose to travel at slight possible risk. We will not be able to stop those who wish to travel to their local package store, however the option to have products delivered from Package stores will provide an option or choice. This Petition serves as an ask from a new business and consumers to include package stores in not only the sales and delivery of there wine and beer products, but also other distilled products so that consumers can stay safe during and after COVID-19. All while we are keeping businesses in business and employing the unemployed or keeping the employed as such. 

      Keeping in mind the concerns that the security of alcohol being delivered to minors this revision should come with an extra restriction when including package stores in for delievery 

  • Package stores should only deliver to verifiable patrons 25 and older. 
  • Delivery Services should only have drivers 25 and older deliver from package stores to consumers. 

"HB879 already passed the House, 110 to 54, on Tuesday, March 10. It now heads to the state Senate, which has until the end of the legislative session on April 3 to vote yay or nay. If passed, HB879 then heads to the desk of Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to sign into law. *However, concerns over the spread of COVID-19 in Georgia, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, could alter the latter part of this legislative session’s schedule."

*If we can revise this bill to include delivery of local package stores and their products we assist in prevention of the spread of COVID-19. 

     This petition aims to aid in keeping or adding jobs in the local areas via package stores or delivery services, helping sustain our local economy and again continuing to help it thrive during and after COVID-19. Lastly, this petition has a grander task of discouraging the public to drink and drive that is hoped to be reached through what I hope you see is big picture in a small window. Include Package stores in House Bill 879 for delivery of wine, beer and spirits.
