Ask your legislator to support proposal to restore city and county liquor revenue

As we mentioned in last week’s Legislative Bulletin, slightly different proposals to restore city and county liquor revenue were introduced in the House and Senate. The House version, HB 1113, was heard in the House Appropriations Committee. (See last week’s article for more details about the hearing.) Cities and other stakeholders testified in favor and made a strong case for why local jurisdictions need liquor revenue to pay for public safety-related impacts of liquor sales.

The proposal is scheduled for executive session this week. If you are supportive of the effort to restore city liquor revenue, please take a moment to thank legislators on the House Appropriations Committee for hearing the bill and ask them to support it. Contact information for committee members is available here.
