IN lawmakers give the cold shoulder to cold beer bill

He says the state should take time to review those effects before authorizing a full 20-hour sales day.

But some business owners still spoke out against it.

"Should the state allow cold beer be allowed to be sold in convenience stores and gas stations, we would be forced to carry and to remain competitive", Singh said.

In June, the Indiana Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association released results of a poll of 600 Hoosiers showing that 65 percent favored allowing of Sunday carryout sales of alcohol; 70 percent said they supported the expansion of cold beer sales.

IN is the only state that regulates the temperature at which beer is sold.

An Old National Bank/Ball State University 2017 Hoosier Survey performed past year found 61 percent of Hoosiers support allowing grocers and gas stations to sell cold beer.

It pitted convenience store owners, purporting to stand up for consumer interests and free markets, against liquor stores that portrayed themselves as mom-and-pop businesses that are the state's trusted purveyor of alcohol.

"These owners have paid dearly for the privilege", he said.

"We would love to change our business model but it was handed to us by the legislature and by regulatory framework", said Patrick Tamm, representing the liquor stores through the Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers.

Today, that left advocates for convenience stores and gas stations to fight the cold beer battle on their own. Liquor store owners must live in IN, operate only in towns and cities, hire and train clerks that are over 21, sell few items beyond alcohol and follow rules on store design and square footage.

But supporters of the measure, including Ricker, said Republican committee chairman Ron Alting would not allow any of their proposals to be heard during the committee.

Senator Jon Ford from Terre Haute was among the nine committee members that voted against the bill. Contrast that with about $4,000 from big-box retailers, supermarkets and pharmacies; and $3,000 from convenience stores.

The Sunday sales bills were developed from recommendations by an interim Alcohol Code Revision Commission.

"That means about 1.9 million people don't want Sunday sales". He expressed pride Wednesday in the civil manner of the cold beer debate. Getting a hearing is a first step. But when it comes to changes to alcohol laws in IN, nothing is assured until final passage. Follow him on and.
