'Small Business' Bill Heads To Governor Markell For Signature

Posted: Updated:

DELAWARE - The first state is officially one step closer to opening a big door for local entrepreneurs.

Today, House lawmakers passed a bill that would exempt solids and confections with two percent or less liquor by weight  from the definition of alcoholic liquor. This would allow a Millsboro couple to both manufacture and sell "Blotto Gelato," which combines alcohol with ice cream, sherberts, and sorbets. Under current Delaware law, the Belfont's would be prohibited from doing so.

The bill was sponsored by Senator Ernie Lopez (R-Lewes), who says the legislation could promote job growth. The measure now heads to Governor Markell for his signature.
