The Massachusetts Food Store Wine Selling Initiative did not make the November 6, 2012 general election ballot in the state of Massachusetts as an initiated state statute. The measure was filed by Cynthia A. Eid and was assigned initiative number 11-25 (dead link). The proposal was described as an "act to increase consumer convenience and choice by permitting food stores to sell wine."[1]

Legislative action

During Massachusetts legislative session, the General Assembly came up with a compromise in hopes of having supporters skip their initiative efforts.[2]

Path to the ballot

Backers needed to collect 68,911 signatures by the December 7, 2011 petition drive deadline. The measure did not submit signatures by that deadline.
