AB687,1,2 1An Act to amend 125.68 (10) (bs) of the statutes; relating to: interstate
2shipments of wine to individuals.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, a winery located outside this state may ship wine into this
state without an out-of-state shippers' permit and directly to an individual if the
winery is located in a state that has a reciprocal agreement with this state pertaining
to out-of-state shipments of wine to individuals in the respective states (reciprocal
agreement) and if certain other conditions are met. Prior to 2005 Wisconsin Act ....
(2005 AB-100, the biennial budget bill), an individual in this state could not receive
more than nine liters of wine annually from out-of-state wineries, and the 2005
biennial budget bill increased this amount to 27 liters.
This bill eliminates the quantity limitation on wine shipments to individuals
in this state from out-of-state wineries shipping under reciprocal agreements.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
