Joe Reedy reports on Florida's alcohol separation law (which R Street's Christian Cámara recently testified about):
The liquor wall is closer to coming down in Florida.
A proposal nicknamed the 'Whiskey and Wheaties Bill' (SB 106) allowing grocery stores, big box retailers and other stores to sell liquor in the same space as other products was approved by the Florida Senate in a 21-17 vote on Thursday. Currently, liquor must be sold in a side store which is separated by a wall.
Sen. Anitere Flores, the Miami Republican who was the bill's sponsor, said it eliminates an antiquated provision that's been around since Prohibition.
