Senator Brownsberger submitted the following testimony to the Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure
TO: Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure
FROM: Senator William N. Brownsberger
DATE: November 12th, 2013
I am writing in support of S82, An Act relative to the shipping of alcohol.
Massachusetts is one of the few states nationally that continues to prohibit the shipping of alcohol by licensed retailers. Shipping alcohol, direct to consumers will open up new channels of business for alcohol retailers and small producers in Massachusetts.
This bill provides a clear economic benefit to the state, I hope the committee will report S82 favorably.
