There is currently a liquor commis

“We had some hearings last fall
across the state and people did testify
that some bars will serve people who
are intoxicated, though it’s very hard
to prove in court,” he said.
Schellpeper said the bill might
have a tough time passing because the
law would be hard to enforce.
“It!s one of those sound-good bills
that heeds to be discussed but some
thing that would be hard to make
work,” he said.
