Why not?...because it makes too much sense and we live in a backwards state.

This non-issue is a perfect example of lobbyists/special interest groups wasting tax payer money. I would say given the choice most residents would have no problem with wine sitting on the shelf beside the beer that is already there, but liquor store owners are fighting the change because they will not be able to compete with the lower prices big box stores will be able to offer on wine.

Remember folks, when the legislative process is involved, it is never about what the people want. It is always about making or losing money for a special interest group or a one of the legislators themselves. If you remember this little golden rule you will never be disappointed in those who (don't) represent you the people.
