The state is even home to 37 dry counties, which date back to Prohibition, according to Roy Hale, program specialist at the Austin-based Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission."Most are located in East and far West Texas," he noted.

"It's not going to be a fast process," said Roy Hale, a program specialist with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission in Austin."There is a lot of material that must be provided to our offices before we can issue a permit and even in the best of worlds, it's not going to happen by tomorrow."

Hale said a restaurant must take several steps before being allowed to sell drinks under the new permit guidelines.
"First, they have to get an application to serve alcohol and get approved by the city and county," Hale said.
"Once the city and county approve it, the application is submitted to the TABC, and then our field offices review the application," Hale said."After our people clear it in the field, it is submitted to the state offices, and we can usually get a permit printed within a couple weeks."
If a restaurant has never served alcohol through a private club status, the process can take longer.
"You can automatically add 60 days to the process because those businesses must advertise their intent in the local newspaper and local citizens have an option to protest it," Hale said.

Being dry or wet appears to have always been a local option issue, said Roy Hale, program specialist with the enforcement division of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission office in Austin.

The modern era of alcohol sales across the state starts with national prohibition, which was repealed on Dec. 5, 1933, per ratification of the 21st Amendment.
In 1935, the Texas Liquor Control Act, which was administered by the Texas Liquor Control Board, went into effect, he said.
"When national prohibition was repealed, everything turned back to its wet/dry status before prohibition began," Hale said."It was a hodge-podge even then."
Most of the state at that time was dry, he said.The state seemed to be divided by Highway 90, which is now Interstate 10, he said.
Below the highway was commonly wet; above it, was dry.Even major metropolitan areas in Harris, Travis and Tarrant counties were only partially wet, he said.
The move from dry to wet has been slow and steady over the past several decades, but legislation passed two sessions ago truly lit the fire underneath the issue, Hale said.
One major change made it easier to meet liquor petition standards.A petition previously needed 35 percent of registered voters to sign it before it could be submitted to the state and an election held.Now, a petition only needs signatures from 35 percent of the residents who voted in the last gubernatorial election - a much smaller number - to qualify.
"It's really been escalating in the last two to four years, based on these changes to these issues," Hale said about liquor elections across the state.
