CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming lawmakers are considering legislation that would free up inactive liquor licenses for new businesses to use.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/2djYzJ2 ) that the Legislature’s Joint Corporations, Elections & Political Subdivisions Committee voted last week to send a bill that would require license holders to sell liquor for 12 consecutive months to the full Legislature in 2017.

Currently, liquor license holders are only required to sell alcohol for three consecutive months per year to keep their license. Because retail liquor licenses are limited by an area’s population, unused licenses prevent other businesses from obtaining them.

Seasonal operations could still keep their licenses under the proposed legislation.
