If you are reading this message, you should know that the Texas Legislature is currently in session.
In fact, it ends May 31st!
At this point, not a single bill has passed to help Texas distilleries
recover from being shut down for most of 2020.
These are the same distilleries that made hand sanitizer and provided it to first responders, hospitals, and nursing homes – free of charge. But make no mistake, Texas distillers don’t want a hand-out; they just want a free market to sell their products to customers like you. We support the passage of S.B. 757 by Senator Charles Schwertner that, if passed, will allow distillers to ship bottles directly to you. We support S.B. 1013 and H.B. 2232 by Senator Dawn Buckingham and Representative John Bucy. These bills would allow a local option election to determine whether distilleries can be open 7 days per week. We support S.B. 655 and H.B. 2890 by Senator Schwertner and Representative Cody Harris. These bills would allow us to sell you more than 2 bottles in a 30-day period. If you want to see craft distilleries prosper in Texas, hire Texans, and contribute to the tax base of your community; and if you want to be able to get the products you want, when you want them, we encourage you to contact your state representative and state senator today.
Thank you for your support!
