Bipartisan Alcohol Auction Bill Clears Committee
DENVER – In a unanimous, bipartisan vote, Senate Bill-67 cleared the Senate Business, Labor, & Technology Committee moments ago. Sponsored by both Senators Kevin Priola and Rachel Zenzinger, the bill allows certain nonprofit organizations to auction alcohol in closed containers for certain events.
“Currently, you can’t legally auction off a bottle of wine at an alumni gala, or at a political fundraiser, and that needs to change,” said Senator Priola. “I’m glad we could find a bipartisan solution on this issue and stop criminalizing such an innocent act.”
The bill now move to the Senate floor for debate and consideration.
