Legislation introduced in the Texas Senate would remove a decades-old anticompetitive and unconstitutional limit on package store ownership and promote a free and fair market in Texas.

State Sen. Brian Birdwell, R-Granbury, has introduced Senate Bill 645 that would remove the limit on package store ownership and the so-called “consanguinity loophole.”

Current Texas law limits the number of package store permits a person can own to five with two exceptions or loopholes:

    If the permits were owned before May 1, 1949.
    The “consanguinity” exception which allows a package store owner’s closest blood relative to obtain additional permits and then consolidate the permits under the owner’s permit.
