The Brewery Modernization Act passed the senate today. It still has to get through the house, so nothing is certain yet.

well I know it dose not look good for the homebrew bill anymore, but the Brewery Modernization Act looks like its gaining steam:

Brewery Modernization Act passes House committee… again
By Dan Roberts | Published: April 13, 2010

Our Senate flavor of the Brewery Modernization Act, SB328, passed out of the House Tourism and Travel Committee this morning without a hitch. This bill is now the substitute legislation. Since SB328 passed the Senate, we are now a House vote away from being sent to the Governor.

When can we expect a vote? That’s hard to say. We will get a second reading this afternoon when they’re in session, but we can’t be put on the regular calendar until the day after our second reading. We can’t be put on a special order calendar until we’re on the regular calendar.

Realistically, we don’t expect to have a shot until next week on either the 29th or 30th legislative day. The legislature is constitutionally required to only meet on 30 days in the year, and next week will be days 29 and 30. We at Free the Hops apparently like the dramatic. Expect an email next week asking you to melt the House phone system.




No more BIR vote this session
By Dan Roberts | Published: April 14, 2010

The General Fund Budget went to the Governor yesterday. That means no more Budget Isolation Resolutions. If you’re new to Alabama politics, the state constitution has this strange provision where no bills can be passed before the state budgets. The only way to vote on a bill before the budgets is if the chamber adopts a special “Budget Isolation Resolution” for the bill. A BIR requires a 3/5 supermajority. The result of this constitutional amendment is that most bills require a 3/5 supermajority to pass.

When the Brewery Modernization Act comes up in the House, however, we will only need a simple majority to pass. That’s the good news about coming up this late in the session. The bad news is that we expect to again be in the “pocket veto” range of the Governor. While we have no reason to suspect that Governor Riley will not sign our legislation into law, we may again call on you to call the Governor’s office to ask for support.

For now, let’s focus on the task at hand. We need to come up for a vote in the House next week and we need a voting majority to pass. If you haven’t touched base with your State Representative, it’s about that time.

I guess getting one passed is better than none. Just makes no sense why they just can't say yah or nah and move on......

I couldnt imagine homebrew being illegal. That is just too funny. Sorry guys, but you know what I mean.

But its obviously a law that isnt enforced all that hard, right?

I read a story about a guy who almost went to jail for it, but I think he was being an ass about it.
