Idaho Senate debating liquor law reform

Posted By on Thu, Mar 26, 2009 at 11:01 AM

The Senate is debating SB 1148 right now, Gov. Otter's overhaul of state liquor licenses.

"We currently have  system where the state limits the number of licenses that are available... we artificially create wealth by the state by having the system where you put your name on a list and hope you get to the top and then sell it or you come to the Legislature and if you have enough ability to put your case forward you can get an exception," said Nampa Rep. Curt Mckenzie, who is carrying the bill and is just now opening up debate.
