Illinois lawmaker proposes bill removing retail wine shipping ban

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WREX) — An Illinois lawmaker is looking to make it easier for people to have wine shipped to them.

Sen. Sara Feigenholtz, (D) of the 6th District (Chicago), proposed SB3830 last month.

The bill would create the wine retail shipper's license, meaning Illinois residents could have wine shipped to them from retailers or wine clubs from all over the world. 

Currently, only the producer of wine can ship bottles into Illinois and deliver them to a customer.

The bill was sent to the Assignments committee in the Senate.
