Wine Bill

A PROPOSED BILL THAT WOULD ALLOW PATRONS TO TAKE HOME OPENED BOTTLES OF WINE FROM RESTURANTS IF THE BOTTLE IS RESEALED...IS WINDING ITS WAY THROUGH THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY. THE BILL HAS PASSED THE STATE SENATE AND IS PENDING IN A HOUSE COMMITTEE. THE MEASURE WOULD ALLOW PEOPLE TO TAKE HOME UNFINISHED BOTTLES OF WINE THEY PURCHASE WITH A MEAL. BUT IT WOULD REQUIRE THE BOTTLE TO BE PLACED IN A TAMPERPROOF CONTAINER AND BE ACCOMPANIED BY A DATED RECEIPT. ALSO...THE OPEN-CONTAINER LAW WOULD REQUIRE THE BOTTLE TO BE STOWED IN THE TRUNK...A LOCKED GLOVE BOX...OR ANOTHER PLACE INACCESSIBLE TO THE DRIVER.
