Bad MA Wine Shipping Bill Unlikely to Pass in 2012
The odds are very good that the [Commonwealth] of Massachusetts will end its annual legislative session without passing a direct shipping bill. The end of the 2012 MA legislative session is at 11:59pm on Tuesday July 31. Currently, H 1029, a bill that would partially legalize direct shipping in the state sits in the Consumer Protection Committee...dong nothing. For passage, the Committee will need to vote out the bill, then the bill needs to be voted upon in the House and Senate.
