Alcohol law changes put on hold in Oklahoma Legislature
Oklahoma legislators have changed course and are now working to create a task force to study whether to allow strong-beer and wine sales in state grocery and convenience stores.
A legislative proposal to allow strong-beer and wine sales in state grocery and convenience stores has been put off until next year.
Legislators said they will create a task force to further study the proposal, which turned out to be more complicated than initially thought.
“Obviously, this is a huge issue. It's not something that is quite so simple as to be able to throw it all on one page,” Sen. Clark Jolley said.
