3 Kansas Counties Vote on Liquor by the Drink

ULYSSES, Kan. (AP) _ A Nov. 4 ballot question in three western
Kansas counties sits in the shadow of a historic presidential race
and numerous state and local contests.
Grant, Greeley and Edwards counties are asking whether
liquor-by-the-drink sales should be allowed in public places
without requiring that a portion of their gross receipts come from
sales of food.
In 1986, Kansas voters approved a state constitutional amendment
to permit the sale of liquor by the drink in public places. An
initial requirement that liquor-by-the-drink establishments derive
at least 30 percent of gross receipts from food sales was followed
by an alternative allowing no food requirement.
Today, more than two-thirds of Kansas counties permit
liquor-by-the-drink sales.
