Oklahoma is one of the last, if not the last state to not allow the sale of 6 point beer and liquor in convenience, grocery and specialty stores (like Wal Mart). If you want to create jobs and spur growth, this is an excellent method of drawing new businesses to Oklahoma (like Costco who has the highest entry-level employee salary of any large chain).

The liquor store special interest and even beer manufacturer special interest(since low pt equals more consumption which equals more profit) bought our polititians a long time ago. It will prob have to go directly to the people for it to ever get here. Oh, and economic growth actually means very little to our lawmakers. Which special interest gives the most does.

we need to do this in support of the small business owner...the small winery and brewery.....we have got to give back to these types of business before large corporate greed puts us all in the poorhouse.

John Lewis, this would not be an economic boost - that is crazy. it certainly makes sense to provide more outlets, but David, this isn't going to do much for your very real concern that State 'favors' to business is heavily skewed to the 'big boys' to the detriment of taxpayers and local businesses. it won't be long before all businesses are part of a national chain.
