TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Senate has approved a measure that would allow alcohol at state events at the Capitol and adjusts a number of liquor permit processes.

Republican Rep. Vicki Schmidt of Topeka said she opposed the bill, which was approved Thursday on a 30-6 vote, because it vaguely defined when alcohol would be permitted in the Capitol.

The bill also would allow patrons of art galleries to bring their own bottles of wine to painting sessions. Alcoholic beverages could also be consumed at farmer’s markets, state fairs and catered events on public property, under the bill.

It also would allow alcohol distributors to provide samples and let vineyards sell wine on their property.
