Moreover, this bill will require Alabama vendors to purchase liquids only from a wholesaler that is permitted by the state. This will have the effect of dramatically reducing the availability of products to consumers in Alabama.
Please take action now and send a message to your lawmakers and the committee urging them to oppose this bill.
