OK Group Continues Push for Wine in Grocery Stores

LAWTON Okla_ An Oklahoma group is hoping second time is the charm for a petition. They hope they can drive voters in Oklahoma to decide whether to have wine sold in grocery stores.

The plan is promoted by the group Oklahomans for Modern Laws. The group's attorney, former Secretary of State Glenn Coffee, said it plans to resubmit the proposal to Oklahoma voters this summer. President of the Retail Liquor Association of Oklahoma J.P. Richard, who owns a Lawton liquor store, said he's shocked to see the group try again.

"Last year, when I saw the language of the petition that they were circulating, I thought this is strictly from Stupidsville," Richard said. "I mean, the bill is so poorly crafted. It only benefits sit counties, and it only benefits about five out of state grocers."

Supporters of the plan say they're hoping to get the issue to a vote of the people in the November 2014 general election.
