SQ 792: Selling wine and high-point beer in grocery stores and convenience stores in Oklahoma

Are you in favor of wine and high-point beer being sold in grocery stores and convenience stores?

That is the crux of State Question 792.

Also included in the proposal is allowing liquor stores to sell cold beer and items other than alcohol, such as limes, corkscrews, etc. It would also allow for liquor store owners to have more than one store. A companion bill would go into effect if SQ 792 passes which would allow shipment of wine into Oklahoma.

According to Oklahoma Policy Institute, supporters say current laws send money out of state and prevents growth of local businesses; ease the burden on consumers who must make a separate trip to another store to purchase their wine or beer; will allow new craft beers to become available.

Opponents say production of low-point beer could end by allowing grocery stores to sell high-point beer; some liquor stores could be forced out of business trying to compete with grocery stores and convenience stores; could allow large chains to take over the market due to easing the ownership restrictions in the state.

Vote YES means you are in favor of wine and high-point beer being sold in grocery stores and convenience stores.

Vote NO means you want Oklahoma's alcohol laws to remain in their current form.
