KATV-TV in Little Rock reports Arkansas lawmakers on Monday filed a bill that would allow retail liquor permit holders to deliver alcohol directly to homes.
Senate Bill 32, co-authored by Sen. Jane English, R-North Little Rock, would allow delivery of the beverages to residents in wet counties who are at least 21 years old.
The deliveries also must be completed during legal operating hours and are not allowed outside the county where the store is located.
The alcohol would have to be delivered by employees of the store, not by third party delivery brands.
The Arkansas Alcohol Beverage Control allowed restaurants and liquor stores to deliver alcohol when Gov. Asa Hutchinson declared a state of emergency in March and several liquor stores have been pushing to keep deliveries during the pandemic.
