Bill Allowing Factory Delivery Of Alcoholic Beverages Passes Senate Committee

Julian Tysoe /

A bill to allow the home delivery of factory sealed alcohol beverages to your front door has passed out of a Senate committee. Bill sponsor, Jennings Senator Blade Morrish says there are already several home delivery companies such as Waitr, operating in larger cities. He says alcohol delivery would fit in well.


Morrish says drivers who would deliver the factory sealed alcohol would be held under the same rules as a bartender.


The legislation contains restrictions, such as who can deliver it and who can order it. Morrish says the law could be adjusted under the oversight of the state office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control.
