Homebrew Legalization Bill in Alabama
« on: February 16, 2012, 08:46:03 PM »
Just got this note from the Homebrew legalization group. If you have any family in Alabama please forward them the note below. Wish us luck.

We are excited to report that House bill HB354 was filed today to legalize Homebrewing in Alabama. With your help, it will pass into law, and cause Alabama to finally join the 48 other states that have already legalized homebrewing. The bill has taken its first step by being assigned to the Economic Development and Tourism Committee, where it now waits for its turn.

It is not too early to call and write your Alabama House representative to ask for his or her support for HB354, the Homebrewing Legalization Bill. We were defeated last year because not enough people voiced their support to their legislators to convince them to vote YES. We must do better this year!

More information will be sent when we receive it. Be sure to keep an eye on http://www.alahomebrewing.org for news and updates. Pass this to any of your friends who may be interested. Thank you for your support!

Let's hope there are some new reps in place this year, or you get a sponsor that will defend the bill a little more aggressively.

If anything, we'll get more audio gems from Alvin Holmes.

Good luck!

you gotta love Alvin, he's a real gem.  What a classic orator, 1000 years from now his "what's wrong wit de beer we got?" speech will be taught in universities across this land.

Gotta love Mr. Holmes and his colleagues.  I'm already chuckling in anticipation of another classic oration!

HB 354 passed out of the house yesterday with a 43-33 vote. The bill was immediately introduced to the senate and sent to committee.
I think we will be OK here because the 2011 homebrew bill passed the senate even though it was defeated in the house.
