Legislative summer studies often result in proposed legislation. This study was selected by lawmakers after a 2014 bill failed that would have allowed direct shipping of wine to customers.

Watertown Republican Roger Solum chairs the committee that will meet throughout the summer.

It will examine the three-tier system of alcohol sales that includes producers, wholesalers and retailers nationwide with a presentation from the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Committee members will meet with beverage distributer interest groups and the Department of Revenue. The Wine Institute and South Dakotans for Better Wine Laws will also speak before the committee in Pierre.
