I just checked the ALISON site and found this concerning the bill:

Pending
third reading on day 28 Favorable from Job Creation and Economic Development

Does that mean that it is scheduled to be read on day 28 and if so, does anyone know when day 28 is?

But... I read this on Free the Hops Facebook concerning the Bottle Bill. I think it means that they have added an extra day to the session?

Great news! The legislature has decided to adjourn this year's session on Wednesday the 16th, instead of Tuesday the 15th. This removes our bill from the "pocket veto" window so if Governor Bentley takes no action on the bill, it will become law without his signature. However, HE CAN STILL KILL THE BILL IF HE CHOOSES. He could "basket veto" it by returning it to the Senate with a veto at such a late hour on Wednesday that they would have no time for an override. So your calls are still *crucially* important. Keep them up! And emails, letters, and faxes.

If the Governor takes no action on the bill, it will become law without his signature at midnight, this Wednesday, May 16th.

Note, however, there is a provision in the bill that means it won't go into effect until August 1st. That is to give wholesalers and retailers time to prepare for all the new packages.

Yep. Bottle bill is looking better and better... but homebrew bill is all but out of time.

I'm pretty sure that won't change how many days they meet, just what will be the last day they meet, changing the last meeting day from Tuesday to Wednesday.

That makes sense.

Heh. Legislators putting in extra hours to get their jobs done - for no extra pay? Riiiiight.

I'll have to pass that along. I forgot they do the smaller bottles now. The bottle shop I go to only has the 750ml so I forgot they did smaller packaging. Thanks for the tip!
