I read that it made it through the initial committee, but not sure if it'll ever be put up for a vote in the House. The Bill's sponsor is a republican. And like you said, Dems are holding everything up now in protest over the education law that was passed.

It's gonna happen and I think this year. I am just getting back into homebrewing after many years and still getting equipment together. Not in any real hurry because just don't want to be looking over my shoulder. Not sure what the sheriff's reaction would be and so not taking too many chances finding out.

Love your quote! I couldn't believe that actually stood up as a viable argument.

Oh man, I love that. Just couldn't believe it. Very sad, you guys need to pick up some pitch forks for christ's sake. This is America and this is your representative.


And more. You've got to hear this.

Near Montgomery here.

Haven't really been brewing lately. The LHBS closed down (the one near Russell, the older of the two). Supposedly it was only temporary but as it's been months now I think maybe my idea of temporary and theirs is a bit different. There is a second one open in Fairview and the guy who owns it seems like a nice guy but my motivation has been lacking since.

HB9 is on the SOC (Special Order Calendar) for April 2nd. It's third on the list, so baring any nasty political fights on the first two bills, we should see a vote in the Alabama House on April 2nd.

That's great unless it ends up dying in the Senate like it did last year.

That was part of the reason why they introduced identical bills in both houses this year. Last year's bill passed the house, and then had to work its way through committee in the Senate. Both bills are our of committee this year. Once one of them passes either house, the passing bill will be substituted in the opposite house.

Plus, last year the Senate got bogged down on budget issues. They've already passed the budget this year in the Senate, so that's one less obstacle.

I'm cautiously optimistic. I went to Montgomery and spoke to the House Committee that voted on HB9 and had a chance to talk to the bill sponsors from both houses. They are both good guys.

I understand that and while I don't disagree with the premise, the cynic in me suspects they sit on them so they don't have the assumed negative backlash from pushing it through. After all, we're just a bunch of drunks in the propaganda some groups push...
