Mass Governor Vetoes Internet Wine Bill

Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney vetoed a bill yesterday that would have allowed state residents to purchase wine over the Internet.  The bill was passed by the legislature last week and it imposed certain limitations on the purchases.  Among them was a restriction that would have prohibited shipments from wineries that produce more than 30,000 gallons a year and was represented by a Massachusetts wholesaler for the past 6 months.  The Governor vetoed the bill because it was too restrictive for consumers.  The Supreme Court struck down restrictions on Internet wine shipments in the last term.

The Boston Globe has the story here.
