LANSING, Mich. Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, and Mark Sutton, public relations director for the American Legion Department of Michigan, on Wednesday outlined the need to enact legislation that would allow veterans clubs like the American Legion or Veterans of Foreign Wars to sell beer to members of different chapters of the same organization.

Senate Bill 662 would allow a local club of a nonprofit veterans or fraternal organization that is currently allowed to sell alcohol to its members to be able to serve alcohol to members of different branches or chapters of the same organization from across the state.

After hearing from Jones and Sutton, the Senate Regulatory Reform Committee unanimously approved the bill.
