How a Maryland Senator is Helping the Wine Shipping Cause!
A blog posting on Wine Trail Traveler about Senator Bobby Zirkin proposing an amendment to a different wine bill that would allow direct wine shipping:
Saturday, 20. March 2010
Yesterday, supporters of Maryland Direct Wine Shipping received a
pleasant surprise from Maryland Senator Bobby Zirkin. The Senator
proposed an amendment that would allow direct wine shipping.
Since direct wine shipping is already a given in the majority of
states and appears to be working well, why should Maryland wine drinkers
be denied the opportunity to have wines shipped in Maryland?
From an economic standpoint, it makes sense for Maryland to benefit
from the increased revenue that will occur. Perhaps enough money to
prevent more furloughs and cuts in other budgets?
Call or email your Maryland State Senator this weekend and request
that they support Senator’s Zirkin’s amendment. Marylanders should not
have to wait another year to have the same rights that so many others in
the US have.
