Anti Direct Shipping Bill renamed HR1161 Bad for Wine buyers Merchants & Wineries
H.R. 5034 has been renamed CARE Act H.R.1161.
Beer, Wine & Spirits Producers urge Congress to reject this bill
This bill will have a direct impact on all consumers in the U.S. that order wine to be shipped. We need to contact our representatives with our opposition.
H.R. 5034 gained strength with 152 CoSponsors until it was put on the back burner when election time came around last November. WSWA has vowed to fight vigorously to pass the newly rewritten bill. WSWA & National Beer Wholesalers Assoc spent millions of dollars to convince representatives to sponsor this bill. It will be a long hard fight ahead to defeat this.
