CFA Opposes Bill to Allow Alcohol Shipments by Mail

CFA submitted the following letter to congressional leaders opposing the United States Postal Service (USPS) Shipping Equity Act, which would remove a restriction that prevents the USPS from shipping alcoholic beverages. Studies show that most internet alcohol vendors, operating through private delivery companies like UPS and FedEx, do not have adequate safeguards in place to prevent purchases by underage alcohol buyers. The bill would also undermine state and local regulation of alcoholic beverages.
