Does anybody know what is going on with the Kansas home brew bill?
As of July 1, will there be any other states where competitions are illegal? Hmm.
The Kansas bill is indeed dead. It got off to a bit of a late start. There was an attempt to get it added on to another bill, but that procedure was determined to be in violation of legislature rules.
There is currently legislation pending in Illinois and Missouri that would legalize transport of homebrew for competitions, club meetings, etc. The Missouri House may have doomed the MO legislation by tacking on an amendment dealing with beer wholesalers. I have not yet seen the text of that amendment.
Georgia and Iowa both passed homebrew transportation bills earlier this year. I know there is a bill drafted in Ohio, but I haven't heard the status on that in a while. There likely are other states with transport issues, but we've come a long way in the last few years.
