Kansas Considering Full-Strength Beer Sale In C-stores
TOPEKA, Kan. -- Kansas Senate leaders aren't sure when they’ll debate a bill that would phase in sales of full-strength beer, wine and liquor at c-sores and grocery, according to a report by Associated Press.
Leaders are trying to determine support for the legislation, according to Senate President Steve Morris.
The state now allows c-stores and grocery stores to sell cereal malt beverages. Under the bill, Kansas would freeze the number of liquor store licenses until 2017, but c-stores could request a license if an existing liquor store went out of business. Also, liquor store owners could sell their licenses to c-stores, according to the report.
The limit on the number of licenses many grocery and convenience stores could receive would be removed in 2017.
