Note to the Press: Please include the following statement from House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) in your coverage of today’s announcement by the Indiana Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association regarding the results of their statewide poll on alcohol reform issues:
STATEHOUSE (June 5, 2017) – “Indiana’s alcohol laws are clearly outdated as many of these policies haven't been overhauled in generations. That’s why Senate leader David Long and I agreed to create a new commission, which will do a deep dive over the next two years to identify responsible, commonsense solutions to bring Indiana’s laws into the 21st Century. Our goal is to appoint knowledgeable individuals free of ownership connections to the many alcohol industry participants and their lobbyists. Our leadership team is committed to addressing these issues and I look forward to the work ahead."
