COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The world's largest brewer is trying to stop Ohio from enacting a measure that would prohibit brewers from buying wholesale beer distributors.
That provision was part of a bill that moved quickly through the Legislature last week and is now before Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik).
The Columbus Dispatch reports Kasich was expected to meet Wednesday with representatives of Anheuser-Busch InBev before deciding whether he'll sign the measure.
The brewer contends it didn't have a chance to comment on the pending measure and says the legislation will affect its investments in Ohio if enacted. The company runs a large brewery in Columbus and employs hundreds of Ohioans.
Legislative leaders say public notice about the measure was provided and it followed the usual legislative procedures.
