Every day I check my e-mail at 11.08 a.m. (which is the time of day when that site is updated) to see if there are any alerts. Always exciting to find one. More exciting when there is one from the Senate.

I am excited whenever something, anything happens in that place.

But I am happy to see this progress.

You've got a point there RC. I think most of the things they do helps themselves not the people of the US. Hopefully our little bill will be one of the things that does help us.

Man

I've read the bill, but can't come to a conclusion on states rights. Will this force states to accept the hobby distillers or will it 'still' be up to the state for laws governing their area?

If it leaves it in the hands of the state, this bill will be useless. Just as Colorado put a $250 per ounce tax on MJ, the state level could require permits, etc. at such a high level as to kill the home market.

Any thoughts????

We're still pushing, but at this point it really all comes down to Sen. McConnell putting it to the floor.

Sorry- I was talking about S 1562- the original bill, which is a Senate bill. It seems that Congress wants it run first.

I was wondering if you think this might be brought up in this congress or will we have to wait another year before a vote ?

Unfortunately, at the close of the year this session of Congress ends, and all live bills are dead. That would mean that we would have to start all over.

Well, the last session of Congress closed without the bill that we were a part of being passed. It had tremendous support, but unfortunately, the bill never got to the floor.
The HDA made tremendous strides. For the first time we started to get recognition as a legitimate hobby. Legislators, as well as the TTB and Department of the Treasury were all very supportive of our effort. That means that much of the groundwork has been laid. While we need to get onto a new bill, this will not be as difficult of a task as it was the last time.
As many of you know, the HDA has been funded exclusively by membership fees and Brewhaus. Other than a few retailers, no other large suppliers in our industry have helped, and membership fees have been low, leaving a heavy load on us. After more than two and a half years, and over $60,000 funded by Brewhaus, it is time that we need to increase our funding if we are going to continue our fight. I am not entirely pulling the plug on funding, but I cannot continue to carry the bulk of the cost personally. Many of you have become members, and it is greatly appreciated. For those who have not, please consider the benefits that you will enjoy if and when our hobby becomes legal. Memberships start at just $30, and you can also make anonymous donations directly through the Hobby Distiller’s Association website (www.hobbydistillersassociation.org).
To help in securing more funding, we have also started a GoFundMe campaign. This is an option for those who want to avoid being on any HDA list, although our list is kept entirely confidential. Most legislators are now well aware of our effort, so we are past the point of needing to supply a list to them to see how many people in their state are members. The GoFundMe campaign can be found at https://www.gofundme.com...galize-hobby-distilling. Please share this with others that may also support our cause.
There are some upcoming tax bills that must be passed soon. Let’s keep our effort moving so that we can be included on one of those bills!

Thank you all for your support.

Rick

Great news (literally!). A reporter at the ABC affiliate in Detroit (WXYZ) has finished a story on hobby distilling, and it is airing tonight on the 11 o'clock news. Here is a link to the commercial and teaser- http://www.wxyz.com/news...11-moonshine-is-booming. They stream their news at http://www.wxyz.com/video/watch-newscasts-live, so feel free to watch it!
