Where should alcohol be sold?
Lawmakers are considering a proposal to allow the sale of full-strength beer and liquor in convenience stores and grocery stores. Liquor store owners fear such a measure would force them out of business and say it would result in less control over alcohol sales. Supporters say the existing law allowing convenience stores and grocery stores to sell only 3.2 beer and wine coolers is antiquated and restricts the free market.
