New Hampshire needs your voice.
On Tuesday, February 4th, the Senate Commerce Committee will hold a public hearing on SB 621, which would allow ready to drink spirit based cocktails (products such as "Tequila Paloma" and "Rum and Cola") available in convenience and grocery stores, making these higher alcohol percentage drinks widely accessible and available. The size of these cocktails can range from a single serving size to 749 milliliters - one milliliter less than a bottle of wine!
Make your voice heard on why SB 621 is wrong for New Hampshire and join us at the hearing.
Committee Hearing on SB 621
Tuesday, February 4th at 2:30 p.m.
State House Room 100
107 N. Main St. Concord, NH 03301
This policy change would be a monumental shift in New Hampshire's current regulatory system which requires liquor products like these to be sold in state run liquor stores. Polices such as this one, which regulate the percentage and location of where liquor is sold, are in place to protect public health and safety. New Hampshire is currently struggling with a substance misuse epidemic and alcohol remains the most prevalent substance misused in the United States and New Hampshire. Now is not the time to weaken New Hampshire's alcohol regulations.
Can't make it to the hearing? We need strong advocates to call committee members today and urge them to oppose SB 621.
Thank you for your continued advocacy for our Granite State communities!
