California and Alcohol Sweeps
I've been away from sweeping for awhile now...about a year or so. Last year was crazy, got engaged, married, bought a house, moved etc. Anyways, I just started sweeping again a couple weeks ago and keep finding that CA is *NOT* excluded from alcohol-sponsered sweeps. Did I miss something? Is this new? Is it legit? I hope so, I'm excited about it!

Yes, I believe that a new law passed in the State of California and Gov. Brown signed it into law around December, I believe.

One of the OlS members here (forgot their name) was a huge proponent and help in getting this law changed. Perhaps they can post here about the change.

Happy alcohol sweeping in CA to you!

OMG, I had no idea!!! As a Californian, I thank you to whomever took this on!! Found a copy of the bill. It's legit !

Here's a link to an OLS post regarding this too:

Since I did not know about this until today (clueless I know), I'm all for getting on the liquor sweeps to remove that exclusion clause for CA residents!! We CA peeps should all be involved in making sure they know.

DH is in the wine industry, and for the first time, we're now able to enter CA alcohol sweeps, including many from our local wineries. Yippee!!!!

I never understood why some states were exempt from them.

Me neither...well, Utah I could see, considering the state is basically run by the LDS church.
