Wine-in-markets advances in Oklahoma

TULKA, OK -- The path has been cleared for one step toward allowing some grocery stores to sell wine.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court has ruled that an initiative petition seeking a vote on a proposal to permit such commerce can proceed.

What is known as State Question 763 would, if passed, allow counties with a population of at least 50,000 to ask voters for approval of wine sales in grocery stores and warehouse clubs with at least 25,000 square feet of floor space.

The court ruled that the petition seeking such a vote does meet legal requirements to advance. If  supporters collect 155,000 signatures the measure will be placed on the November 6 ballot. If they do not, the next opportunity would be 2014.
