OKLAHOMA CITY — Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law Thursday that will permanently continue the curbside sales and home deliveries of alcohol.

Under Senate Bill 1928, authored by Sen Roger Thompson, R-Okemah, and Rep. Kevin Wallace, R-Wellston, only licensed establishments can provide the delivery or curbside service of beer, wine and spirits, according to a new release by the Oklahoma State Senate. Third party companies cannot deliver these products.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission (ABLE) allowed restaurants, grocery and liquor stores to serve customers through curbside service and delivery. I’ve talked to many citizens who really appreciated the convenience and didn’t want to see it end. This measure will allow that service to continue. It’s another important step in continuing to modernize Oklahoma’s liquor laws, offering more choices to consumers.
Sen. Thompson
