The Sunday wine and beer sales bill could be stalled for the 2007 legislative session under a measure being filed by a key Senate leader.
Senate Regulated Industries Chairman David Shafer (R-Duluth) is filing a resolution today creating a summer study committee on all alcohol laws. The wine and beer sales bill must go through Shafer’s committee.
Study committees are a common way of killing bills in the General Assembly because they allow lawmakers to put off decisions on controversial issues.
I’m not sure what needs to be “studied,” but Senotr Shafer will probably blog about it.
