How a Maryland Senator is Helping the Wine Shipping Cause!

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.
