Distribution breakdown

It feels like we're waiting a long time for what should be a foregone conclusion to the wine shipping laws: let loose the tide of small producers who wish to go "national" directly to consumers - regardless of which state they live in, or which state the producer is in!

Still, some states are weighing this proposal and that, trying to find ways to change what has been 70+ years of confusing statutes. Yes, the legal system takes time to adopt the changes (and certainly the wholesaler & distributinon lobby is doing it's part to "make sure the country doesn't change anything too quickly - or become too "consumer- friendly"), but shouldn't we be much closer to the end goal of anyone can get anything?
Makes me want to ask "are we there yet?" ...
