Law Making A-B Divest Distributorship Passes Ill. Senate

A bill that will require Anheuser-Busch to sell its minority stake in Chicago's City Beverage has passed the Illinois Senate. Anheuser and the Illinois Liquor Control Commission have been involved in a string of litigation on this issue since the commission blocked the world's largest brewer from acquiring City Beverage in 2010. The matter was sent to the General Assembly for clarification. (Chicago Tribune)
