It was a not just a home run, it was a grand slam!

Rep. Forte responded that "times are different now" and really had no other rebuttal.
Epic.

So it looks like Mississippi will be the biggest loser soon.

It looks as if Mississippi is on about the same track

MISSISSIPPI: Homebrew Bill Passed By Senate
February 7, 2013
SB 2183, a bill that would legalize homebrewing in the state of Mississippi, passed the full Senate and is now moving on to the House. If the house passes, the bill will go to the Governor to sign.

Yeah, they were moving ahead quickly too.

Their house bill is done, it is not up to the senate bill which is pending assignment to a house committee.

Big difference is their bill would not take effect till July 1 2013. Ours doesn't have that stipulation, so as soon as Bently signs it, it's in place. We have a chance at beating them!

Not that it matters... just saying though, we have a chance!


Our HB received it's reading in the chamber shortly ago. It is now available for placement on the Special Order Calendar.

Our SB will hopefully get it's reading today too, then we will be set on go for placement on the SOC there as well.

Mac is the Chair of the House Rules Committee, and that means everyone wants him to like them. That, hopefully, means they will all support getting his bill on the SOC right away.

I would like to know why your glasses/posters were not made available for sale online? If nothing else, this would have generated more money that could be put to good use by you in creating public awareness.

Politics is money, and money == votes.

And whatever happened to the separation of church and state? lol Using religion in a public rights/political argument is like using curse words to insult someone. You're just to ignorant to use logic and reasoned thinking.

There are many different ways to argue the detriments of alcohol abuse and the benefits of the brewing hobby. Religion should not be one of them.
