New Mexico Senate OKs Bill for Beer and Wine Delivery
Sitting at home and feel like an ice cold beer but don't feel like going anywhere? Now that may be a thing of the past for New Mexicans with alcohol delivery being approved by the New Mexico Senate.
According to the Albuquerque Journal, the NM Senate voted 32 to 10 on the topic which will now go to the House. Under the pending bill, residents could order alcohol from a restaurant or liquor store that maintains a beer and wine delivery license. The license would allow the delivery of up to two six packs of beer and two bottles of wine to any residence, hotel or other licensed lodging facilities.
The order of alcohol does come along with a minimum food purchase of $20 or more. Supporters say this could help the restaurant business tremendously in sales while opponents of the bill think it will make underage drinking easier for minors.
