ANNAPOLIS – There is a new effort underway in Annapolis to end Montgomery County’s iron grip on liquor sales.
Comptroller Peter Franchot says he will introduce a bill in the General Assembly allowing private alcohol distributors to operate in the county because customers are turning to D.C. and Virginia.
Currently, Montgomery County only allows stores to buy from the county’s own warehouse. Franchot says his bill will give the stores the option to buy beer, wine and liquor from either the county or a private warehouse.
