You can see that good progress has been made this year, and also that there is more left to do (including modernize and adopt a license system for liquor).
For background on the bills, see the following:
- Relaxing Heavy Restrictions to Bring More Freedom to N.C. Distilleries (research brief on the companion bill)
- Governor signs major distillery bill in Durham (Carolina Journal story)
- Bill Would Allow Craft Breweries More Freedom to Self-Distribute (research brief on the companion bill)
- Cooper signs bill letting craft brewers distribute more of their own beer (Carolina Journal story)
