Beer distribution giant Anheuser-Busch opposes Senate Joint Resolution 68, a measure supporters claim will modernize Oklahoma’s liquor laws. Also in opposition are members of the Retail Liquor Association of Oklahoma. President Bryan Kerr says the bill is not good for package stores and the smaller Mom and Pop businesses. He says the resolution as written could mean the closing of dozens of package stores in the state.

The resolution would lead to a public vote to allow cold, strong beer and wine to be sold in grocery and convenience stores. It must still pass the full senate.
