A bipartisan state House bill that would allow state universities to sell beer and wine sales game days has cleared another committee. Right now, state law prohibits sales and consumption of alcohol except in certain areas of Kenan Stadium at UNC Chapel Hill and Carter-Finley Stadium at N.C. State. House Bill 389 would expand sales and consumption to all campus stadiums, arenas and athletic facilities  Each school’s board of trustees would have to vote to allow such sales. Only beer and wine would be allowed at sporting events. Beer, wine and mixed drinks would be available at non-sports events if vendors have the correct permits. The Senate Commerce and Insurance committee recommended the bill Wednesday, preceded by the Education/Higher Education committee June 5. It now goes to Rules and Operations. The House approved the bill by an 88-24 vote April 16. The bill would require alcohol sales take place in designated areas that allow for vendors to control sales, including checking for identification for underage fans. – Richard Craver , journalnow – Read More
