Restrictions on Internet wine purchases in Indiana may soon be a thing of the past.
The Senate has given final approval to a bill repealing the requirement that buyers make one in-person purchase before ordering wine online or by mail.
The restriction would be lifted July 1 if Gov. Pence signs the measure.
Online and mail-order shoppers would still have to scan or fax an ID.
Jim Butler, owner of Bloomington’s Butler Winery, says he lost 90-percent of his shipping customers when the legislature added the requirement 10 years ago.
