State Symbols ? Not Just for Fourth-Graders
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never visited a state because of its official state symbols. But that’s the rationale behind a new bill that would make Budweiser the official state beer:
Budweiser is a Missouri-based international icon that if officially recognized might even persuade more people to visit the state, said Rep. Curt Dougherty.
It’s clear that the purpose of this bill is to help out a particular company. (Perhaps in hopes of future campaign contributions?) Or maybe Rep. Dougherty just wants to help Budweiser learn about the political process!
