WASHINGTON D.C. (WIVB) - U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer is pushing to end restrictions on shipping alcohol through the mail.
The legislation would make it legal to shop beer, wine and spirits through the United States Postal Service. It has been illegal since prohibition.
Schumer argues that the restrictions are unnecessary and actually hurt New York State’s wineries and breweries.
The Senator claims lifting the restrictions could generate another $225 million in revenue helping both wineries and the U.S. Postal Service.
New York ranks in the top three nationally for wine and grape production and comes in second for most distilleries. There are currently 351 wineries in the state.
