Herrera Beutler bill would allow tribes to operate distilleries

Native American tribes have been free to own and operate breweries and wineries since the 1950s, but they are still prohibited from operating distilleries on tribal land under a 184-year-old law.

That would change under a bill co-sponsored by Southwest Washington Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, who is proposing to repeal a 19th-century prohibition on tribal distilleries.
