A group that wants Kansans to be able to buy liquor at grocery stores and convenience stores says it will try again to persuade state lawmakers to change state law.

Currently, Kansans can buy most liquor only in retail liquor stores, except for 3.2 beer and wine coolers.

Uncork Kansas, a coalition of convenience stores, grocery stores, and chambers of commerce, says it plans to introduce a bill to change state law as early in the upcoming legislative session as possible.

The Wichita Eagle reports the Kansas Chamber of Commerce announced earlier this week that it will support the effort.

But Spencer Duncan, executive director of a group called Keep Kansans in Business, said changing the law would hurt existing stores, especially in rural Kansas.
