Stitt signs bill on alcohol distribution
Gov. Kevin Stitt signed Senate Bill 608 on Monday, which once again changes the distribution process of alcohol in Oklahoma.
The bill will require the top brands of wine and spirits be made available for distribution by all wholesalers in the state. Currently, manufacturers of wine and spirits can designate sole distributors/wholesalers of their products.
The bill was primarily backed by Boardwalk Distribution Owner Bryan Hendershot, one of the 11 wholesalers in the state.
“We are grateful for Gov. Stitt’s signature enacting Senate Bill 608,” Hendershot said in a statement. “This is a great day for small business owners across the state.”
