Due to all members of Free the Hops’ hard work yesterday the Gourmet
Bottle Bill (SB294) passed the Alabama House of Representatives
yesterday by a vote of 58-34. This was an incredible turn of events
after GBB did not pass the Budget Isolation Resolution (BIR) vote the
day before. Getting GBB through the House yesterday is a testament to
your passion for this issue and you should be proud.

But we are only two-thirds of the way to our goal of making the
Gourmet Bottle Bill (SB294) a state law. The bill is still in danger
of a pocket veto so Governor Robert Bentley must sign this bill into
law or it will die.

You can help us avoid that danger by contacting the Governor’s office
and asking that Governor Bentley sign Senate Bill 294, the Gourmet
Bottle Bill, into law.

Contacting his office takes less than 60 seconds. All you need to say
is “My name is Joe Schmoe, I live in Sometown, Alabama, and I would
like Governor Bentley to sign Senate Bill 294 into law. Thank you.”

You can contact the Governor via email through his website or by phone/fax.

I cannot stress enough how important it is for you to contact Governor
Bentley expressing your support for SB294. He must sign this bill into
law. We are almost there and we need your help to cross the finish
