POSITIVE MOVEMENT!

From the Star Tribune:
"Draft legislation released late Wednesday allows restaurants with liquor licenses to sell up to one bottle of wine and the equivalent of a six-pack of beer, cider or hard seltzer with food orders.

The measure is set to come up for a vote in the state Senate today. The House next meets on Friday. Walz has said he would sign the proposal into law once passed by the Legislature."

SEND A MESSAGE TO GOVERNOR WALZ AND YOUR REPRESENTATIVES

==========

During this time of crisis, when restaurants are unable to offer onsite dining, many are opting for to-go business.  Without on-premise dining, there are no on-premise alcohol sales to generate much-needed income.

This petition is to persuade the state of Minnesota to allow any on-premise licensee (i.e. restaurants, bars, etc.) to sell closed containers for off-premise consumption, any alcoholic beverages that it is able to sell for on-premise consumption under the law.  

For example, if you are placing a to-go order from an establishment that sells wine and beer, you would be able to purchase wine and beer to-go.

The New York State Liquor Authority has already implemented action to protect its beverage industry, and we are urging Minnesota to follow suit.

Please sign this petition so that we can take this message to Minnesota Governor Tim Walz for immediate action.
