Beer and wine legislative task force disbands

Oklahoma City (AP) _ A legislative task force studying the potential sale of wine and high-point beer in grocery and convenience stores has disbanded. Members of the joint task force on the sale of wine and beer in grocery stores adjourned without making any recommendations.

Senator Clark Jolley is chairman of the task force. Jolley said it became apparent after two meetings that both sides couldn't agree. Jolley says he doesn't know if he'll pursue legislation to change Oklahoma's alcohol laws.

Only low-point beer can be sold in Oklahoma grocery and convenience stores, and non-refrigerated strong beer and wine are sold in liquor stores.

34 states allow wine and strong-beer sales in grocery stores.

Quiktrip spokesman Mike Thornbrugh and Jolley say the issue may appear on an initiative petition for voters to decide.
