A Win for Fair Competition: U.S. Supreme Court Strikes Down Protectionist Liquor Law

Texans for Consumer Freedom applauds the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to strike down a Tennessee law requiring a person to be a resident of the state for two years before applying for a package store license. According to the Court, this law is protectionist and unconstitutional.

This decision reaffirms a U.S. District Court decision that Texas laws preventing publicly traded corporations from obtaining package store permits are also discriminatory and violate the U.S. Constitution.
