HR 1161 was introduced to the loud applause of the National Wholesale Beer Distributors of America lobby organization. (In the words of Ron White, I shit you not. This is the exact wording on the NWBA web site
.) This bill would stop Internet interstate wine and beer sales. Small wineries across the country depend on the Internet sales for their income. There are a handful of beer vendors who have started selling hard-to-find craft beer on the Internet. This would shut them down too.
You know what to do. Contact your Congresscritter
and ask them to oppose HR 1161.
