Franchot Releases Report on Alcohol Direct Shipment

An article on WCBC Radio etitled Franchot Releases Report on Alcohol Direct Shipment about proposed changes to wine shipping laws.

Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot says a report on how 37 states and the District of Columbia allow direct shipment of alcoholic beverages is a "starting point." 
Franchot released the report earlier this week. It was ordered by state lawmakers and does not make policy recommendations. The report disputes claims that direct shipment would make it easier for minors to get wine. It also suggests that Maryland's liquor wholesalers and retailers would see little economic harm if residents could have wine shipped directly to their homes.
