Earlier today I interviewed Governor Deal. I asked him about S.B. 63, the legislation by State Senator Hunter Hill reforming beer laws in Georgia.
In particular, I asked Governor Deal how voters could be assured the legislation will get a fair shake when the Governor and Lt. Governor are the two biggest recipients of money from the Georgia Beer Wholesaler Association in 2014.
You can hear his answer below. The long and short of it is that he has no position on SB63 presently, but when he was in the state legislature he supported the same reforms for wineries and does not see how the brewery reforms are different.
