Beer Institute Responds to Public Sector Consultants MI and NE RTD Report
WASHINGTON – The Beer Institute released the following statement in response to Public Sector Consultants’ report on ready-to-drink beverage price increases in Michigan and Nebraska.
“This new report shows how Michigan and Nebraska legislators and consumers got a raw deal with these massive tax carveouts for big liquor,” said Alex Davidson, director of public affairs at the Beer Institute. “Hard liquor company promises of lower prices for consumers never came true. As federal and state officials examine tax and regulatory proposals in the coming year, we urge them to reject any tax carveouts for the liquor industry.”
