HOUSE BRIEFS

Rep. Loon's Statement on Sunday Growler Sales


ST. PAUL, Minn. – State Rep. Jenifer Loon, R-Eden Prairie, today commented on a procedural floor motion by House Democrats to amend Rep. Joe Atkins’ Omnibus Liquor bill onto gambling-related legislation (House File 2482). A departure from the original House and Senate bill language, Atkins’ amendment lacked a provision allowing growler sales on Sundays.

“The public’s voice was silenced today. The process utilized to bring the Omnibus Liquor bill forward lacked transparency and prohibited the ability of any member to offer an amendment on liquor issues—even though Minnesotans overwhelmingly support Sunday growler sales,” said Rep. Loon, a staunch supporter of changing Minnesota’s outdated liquor laws. “By excluding the growler sales provision, House DFL leaders are hampering entrepreneurial activity, keeping businesses and their jobs from growing in our state.”
