COLUMBUS– State Rep. Juanita Brent (D-Cleveland) today spoke on the House floor and voted in favor ofthe amendments to House Bill (HB) 674, which revises liquor laws.

“I am so glad I can say I am in favor of the Senate amendments to House Bill 674. We are really listening to the people,” said Rep. Brent. “Before this bill was changed, there was an outcry of people who did not want 24 hour or 4:00 a.m. sales, and they wanted a voice on Sunday and holiday sales. These amendments show we are listening to the people while simultaneously giving our small businesses a fighting chance.”

The amendments include:

  • Removing the Sunday and Holiday sales provisions;
  • Removing the 24 hour and 4:00 a.m. sales provisions;
  • Allowing for the Division of Liquor Control to deliver spirituous liquor to personal consumers in original containers pursuant to rules adopted;
  • Creating an F12 license to allow the Division of Liquor Control to issue permits to charitable organizations, labor unions, or employers of 10 or more people to sell beer or wine at a special function.

The Ohio House voted to concur with the Senate amendments by a vote of 75-9.
