Legislature to consider bills related to liquor privatization

The House Government Accountability & Oversight Committee is scheduled to hear two bills related to liquor privatization.

On January 22, the Committee will hear HB 1124, which requires the state to designate one agency to streamline collection of liquor revenue and reports.

On January 24, the Committee will hear HB 1161, which clarifies that Initiative 1183’s restricting a retail liquor sale to no more than 24 liters per single sale means per transaction, and a single sale is one transaction regardless of its proximity to other similar transactions. In addition, retailers would no longer be required to pay a license fee on transactions made to a restaurant or bar.

As we advocate for the restoration of city liquor revenue, we are closely monitoring other bills related to liquor privatization and revenue.
