TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — People attending the Kansas State Fair this fall will be able to stroll the grounds with a beer, a glass of wine or even a cocktail if some Kansas legislators get their way.

House and Senate negotiators are set to draft the final version of legislation expanding the sale of alcohol on the fairgrounds in Hutchinson.

During the fair, patrons 21 and older already can consume beer and wine in designated buildings and areas.

But other states allow fairgoers to roam outside those areas with their drinks, and the Kansas fair wants to follow suit.

The big issue for lawmakers to settle is whether to allow hard liquor sales.
