“Kentucky took a much‐needed step out of Prohibition today with the House passage of Senate Bill 11, which modernizes our archaic alcohol laws and strengthens our famous Kentucky Bourbon Trail® adventures as premium tourism destinations.

“This is a responsible, bipartisan and common‐sense measure that will create jobs, increase investment and generate millions in new tax revenue for state and local coffers while ensuring a richer experience for our visitors.

“We applaud today’s passage by the House and look forward to concurrence by the Senate.”

‐‐‐ Eric Gregory, President, Kentucky Distillers’ Association, a non‐profit trade group founded in 1880 that represents 27 of the state’s distilleries.
