  • Alcohol delivery and curbside – working to get liquor added to any legislation that would allow for curbside delivery and potentially alcohol delivery.
  • Worked to prevent Gallo from selling liquor in their retail locations, helped limit the amount of wine they can sell at satellite locations, and limited the number of satellite locations that Gallo could operate in the state.
