Proposed change in KS microbrewery law
 
HB 2759 proposes to eliminate the residency requirement for the issuance of a microbrewery license. Seems like a pretty targeted change. I would assume someone from out of state is pushing this so they can open a brewery.

I could see how that could be a problem especially around the kansas City area where you have residents of KCK and KCMO interacting and crossing "state lines" pretty easily.

Great insight, Revvy.

Here's the proposed legislation:

Glazer distributors won a case that deemed the residency requirement as unconstitutional.

Final findings from the court document: "Based on the discussion above, the Court finds, rather than exercising a core concern of the Twenty-first Amendment, the challenged residency requirement constitutes nothing more than "mere economic protectionism" and works only to insulate Kansas residents from outside competition."

Based on this, they can then change the microbrewery licensing requirement.
