Statement of Senator Doug McCrory on Senate Bill 742, “An Act Concerning Brewery Sales For On-Premise or Off-Premise Consumption”

“I will be asking the co-chairs of the GAE Committee, where this bill was filed, not to take up Senate Bill 742 for consideration this session.

“However, I do believe it is important going forward to have a broad public debate about how the manufacturers, distributors and retailers of beer in Connecticut can create a more equal and fair system. My support for small business has not changed. Opportunity, equality and fairness for everyone are my only goals. I hope after having these conversations with all sides that some other piece of legislation that is more palatable to everyone involved can be crafted and considered by the legislature.”
