Liquor License Bills Vetoed By Governor Snyder

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Gov. Rick Snyder has vetoed liquor license bills that would have prorated fees for liquor licenses.

He says it’s a “sensible” reform but would cost up to $600,000 in revenue. Governor Snyder says he’s also concerned about limiting penalties for businesses that repeatedly sell alcohol to minors or visibly intoxicated customers.

Currently legislation requires the Liquor Control Commission to hold a hearing to suspend or revoke the license of a licensee that has been found liable for three or more violations of selling, furnishing or giving alcoholic liquor to a minor or visibly intoxicated person or other enumerated violations within a two-year period.

“These are serious violations and maintaining this type of review for repeat offenders is important to the health, safety and welfare of the public,” said Governor Snyder.
