Is this amount of micromanagement necessary to comply with federal law? A distributor cooperative shall maintain a registry of all types of beverage containers sold in this state that describes the beverage containers by name of the beverage contained in the beverage container; type of beverage contained, size of the beverage container; glass, metal or plastic; and universal product code.

Free Markets
This level of micromanagement is costly and will raise the price of beverages to consumers.
