The measure would have prohibited the transportation of liquor into areas where sales are prohibited. It was targeted at stopping brewers and wholesalers who were legally bring liquor into dry counties, and would have allowed a small quantity of liquor to be carried in by individuals.[1][2][3][4]

This measure was the first indirect initiated state statute to appear on the Ohio statewide ballot.
