update from yesterday on the Kansas bill (which passed the House in February and 40-0 in the Senate last month, but with amendments.)

**********************************************************************
"Earlier today, the House met and just before noon here's what happened to our bill: Sub for HB 2223 - Alcoholic beverages; relating to homemade fermented beverages. The House Nonconcurred; Conference Committee requested; the House appointed Brunk, Couture-Lovelady and Ruiz. No meeting announced yet (Senate has to appoint conferees).

The plan is for the House to concur tomorrow before a conference committee meets."

********************************************************************

OK, so I know we've got some legal experts, so I've just got to ask:  What am I not getting?
As I understand it the Committee is a safety measure, but if the plan is to concur before they ever meet, what is the point?  Wouldn't it be easier to, you know, concur the first time?!?

Just more dealing to get approval on this bill in exchange for something else in the future. It's rare for a bill to pass both houses and not have the conference version get voted through.
Heck yeah I blog about homebrewing: Brain Sparging on Brewing but I'm also a lawyer: The Kielich Law Firm

Governor signed bill yesterday.  It'll be weeks before it gets published and becomes official, but very soon I'll have to find some different laws to break.  8)

Well we got it done!  The Kansas Homebrew Law has passed and was signed by the Governor!!!  Here is a good article from the Kansas City Star that covers our win!  http://www.kansascity.com/2014/05/02/4998076/kansas-expands-rights-for-homebrewers.html

Also here is the photo of the official signing.  BTW, that's me standing at the right hand of the Governor.
