Default 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.

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."

Full court doc at this link: https://www.casetext.com/case/glazer...-inc-v-kansas/

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

Reason: Clarification
