Good--and Bad--Legislative News

The good:  The Maryland Senate has joined the House of Delegates in passing a proposal that enables wineries to ship bottles directly to Maryland homes.

The bad:  Both the Senate version and the House version specifically state "wine."  Spirits drinkers and wannabe "beer of the month club" members are STILL out of luck.

Not unless the brewer wants to open a whole 'nother can of worms and start paying markedly higher wine tax rates.........
