The Brewery Modernization Act just passed the Senate in the most routine vote a Free the Hops bill has probably ever received. The Budget Isolation Resolution was passed using a “previous roll,” which means everyone just agreed to let it pass without a real vote. The substitute was adopted in similar fashion.

They took a full vote for final passage, but there was very little debate or discussion. The bill passed with 13 yes votes, 7 no votes, and 1 abstain. Once the information is available, we will update Lobbysoft so you can see how your senator voted.

This is a very exciting development! Once we pass the House, the bill goes to the Governor. I will have more updates later.
