A Letter to Members of the Wisconsin Legislature

It has come to our attention that there may be an effort underway to curtail the Agricultural Event Venue (“AEV”) industry, commonly referred to as “Wedding Barns,” in the Joint Committee on Finance. This change in liquor licensing laws – which has been rejected several times in recent years – would infringe upon a farmer’s ability to freely rent out his or her barn to brides and grooms, devastating Wisconsin’s proud tradition of wedding barns. As a complete affront to economic freedom and limited government, this change, if proposed, should be rejected.
