Legislators Discuss Relaxing Wine-Shipping Laws

Legislators Discuss Relaxing Wine-Shipping Laws
PIERRE, SD -

A state legislative committee has made progress in crafting a bill to let South Dakotans buy out-of-state wines directly from producers but still needs to work out some key details.

Legislators on the Alcohol Distribution and Shipping committee met Tuesday in Pierre.

The committee had planned to finalize the proposed bill that would allow residents to buy up to 12 cases of wine per year directly from wineries. But legislators received conflicting input on how to regulate out-of-state wineries and opted to revisit the issue in October.

Lobbyists for the state's retailers and wholesalers want out-of-state wineries to pay more in taxes and fees. They say it's necessary to ensure a level playing field in the state.

Supporters of the proposed bill worry restrictive rules will keep away wineries.
