Still No Merlot at Local Grocer (Mar 01, 2011)

It will be at least another year before Oklahomans will be able to purchase wine or beer while shopping for groceries.

A bill that would allow convenience and grocery stores to sell strong beer and wine is being put on hold while a task force studies the issue.

A bill by Republican state Sen. Clark Jolley would create a 13-member task force that would help draft a proposal to be presented to the Legislature next year.

The sale of beer with alcohol content in excess of 3.2 percent and wine in grocery and convenience stores is supported by chambers of commerce and consumer groups, but opposed by alcohol retailers and distributors.
