Vancouver Democrat introduces bill to allow sales of wine growlers

Today's Olympia update. A bill submitted in the Washington House would allow beer or wine retailers in the state to sell growlers of wine.  A growler is a container or pitcher provided by the seller or the customer.

Introduced by Rep. Sharon Wylie, D-Vancouver, HB 1742 reads this way:

Licensees holding either a license that permits or a license with an  endorsement  that  permits  the  sale  of  beer  to  a  purchaser  in  a container supplied by the licensee or a sanitary container brought to the premises by the purchaser and filled at the tap at the time of sale  may similarly sell wine to a purchaser in such a container.

A Feb. 12 hearing has been set with the House  Committee on Government Accountability and Oversight. Wylie is the vice chair of that committee.
