04/11/19 -- HB 65 -- Adds powdered alcohol to the MO liquor regulations

Bill Number: 
HB 65
Bill Purpose: 
Adds powdered alcohol to the MO liquor regulations
Date of Vote: 
04/11/19
My Vote: 
No
Explanation: 

HB 65, introduced by Representative Patricia Pike (Republican - District 126) adds powdered alcohol to the list of Missouri's liquor regulations.

I take issue with most of our existing liquor laws, as they are far too strict and bureaucratic for the purposes they serve.  As such, I am not inclined to add additional products to the list subject to regulations.

I was definitely in the minority on this one, being one of only 4 House members to vote against this bill.
