INDIANA (21Alive) -- A bill that would allow the sale of alcohol at the Indiana State Fair made it to Governor Mike Pence's desk for his possible signature.
Alcohol has been banned at the state fair for decades but supporters wanted to repeal that to help show-off certain Hoosier businesses, like wineries.
The State Fair Commission would have to come up with a plan on where and when to sell alcohol during the State Fair, likely in a confined area.
