Last Friday, Comptroller Peter Franchot’s bill to loosen regulations on the state’s craft brewers, the Reform on Tap Act, failed to escape the House Committee on Economic Matters. And it wasn’t close, with the vote going 17-4 against.

But the committee did pass another measure establishing a task force to see if the comptroller’s office should maintain oversight of the state’s alcohol industry. The House of Delegates passed that bill yesterday by a vote of 128-10.
