convenience stores

Indiana convenience stores want Hoosiers to hear directly from them on the need for changes to the state’s alcohol laws.

They’re launching an advocacy campaign that comes as lawmakers prepare to study alcohol laws this summer.

Indiana legislative leaders aren’t certain they’ll resolve a cold beer sales controversy this session.

Two Ricker’s convenience stores, using a legal loophole, recently secured the ability to sell cold beer. That was a right reserved solely for liquor stores and restaurants.

 

A debate erupted in two committees over Indiana’s cold beer sales law after a convenience store’s recent use of a legal loophole drew the ire of liquor stores and legislative leaders.

Two Ricker’s convenience stores qualified to sell cold beer after they started selling made-to-order food and added seating. Indiana law only allows liquor stores and restaurants to sell cold beer for carryout.

Lafayette Mayor's Office

Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski was an invited guest to this week’s State of the State address. This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, we get his feelings on Governor Pence touting Indiana’s gun laws – even as Lafayette is seeing firearms used in some of the increasing number of violent crimes it’s experiencing.

Also on today’s show: the Mayor said a couple months ago he’d be glad to stop hearing questions about the Myers bridge, but some still linger.
