"My administration, working cooperatively with the General Assembly, is taking an important step toward improving the business structure of alcohol sales and licensing in Kentucky. Not since the days of Prohibition has Kentucky undertaken such a comprehensive rewriting and modernization of our laws governing alcohol.
In signing SB13 today, I am convinced we will see a positive economic impact on Kentucky's alcoholic beverage industry. One of our goals was to make it easier to do business in Kentucky, and I believe we have accomplished that through this legislation."
-- Governor Steve Beshear
