Looks as if HB1858 died today, with that dying and 383 and 424 still going, that all means a lot to the future of micro and macro brewing in Oklahoma. 

This will be a really good forum about advancing issues which help really drive revenue and image for Oklahoma.

Unfortunately, looks like I might be in a more brewery-friendly state next week when this happens, so please take good notes!  Grin

Don't start counting chickens...if it makes sense and would be good for the state's image and would be appreciated by a sizable group in the state, it ain't gonna happen.

How does a bill on excise tax on low point beer end up with with a whole section about sales of motor vehicle fuel, motor vehicles, selling and leasing aircraft, sale of crude petroleum and cigarettes?

Pardon the well-learned cynicism.
