The legislation passed the Senate with only one dissent- ing vote, but now must go before the House. It will carry a civil penalty of up to $10,000 if out-of- state floral operations are found in violation. ABCC amendment moves Rep. Shirley Price, D-Millville, saw her Alcoholic Beverage Con- trol Commission (ABCC) legisla- tion, H.B. 504, pass out of the Government Accountability Com- mittee on its way to the House floor earlier this week. The bill is intended to make the ABCC more responsive to local concerns when considering appli- cations for licenses for the sale of alcohol or for suspensions for such reason as noise violations. Price said her bill was voted out of committee unanimously and she was encouraged by the amount of support that it seemed to generate from all areas of the state. She said that it has not been scheduled for.the House agenda yet, but she hopes to see it ap- proved and sent to the Senate soon.

So Graviet contacted Gunning, whom he knew to have a strong interest in history and whose fa- ther was a retired trooper. Gun- ning also was a "car buff," said Graviet, and he collected bits and field; everybody knows what the regulations are." Frederick said that resort area officials are following the progress of the bill very closely, but it is one that is of importance to all areas. Always on the move, Price also prefiled H.B.592 this week. The bill will allow nonresidents to reg- pieces of old vehicles. The museum project sprouted in 1991, when the stateLlegislature provided $25,000 to seed its plan- ning; the remainder of the $1.2 million construction project was funded through donations. Major corporate donors include Melvin Joseph and Sons, MBNA, Wilm- ington Trust, DuPont and Krapf- candoit.
