Modernizing Michigan

How the MLCC is utilizing technology to drastically improve processes.

Andrew J. Deloney’s philosophy of leadership can be summed up in two words: continuous improvement.

Since his June 2011 appointment by Governor Rick Snyder to serve as Chairman of the Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC), Deloney’s primary focus has been adhering to the statewide RPM initiative: reviving performance in Michigan.

Directors explore impact of current system on small business writers, composers and hospitality establishments.


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Fairness in Music Licensing Coalition (FMLC) engaged the US Small Business Administration (SBA) in support of the coalition’s efforts to address the impact of the current system for collecting music licensing fees on the hospitality industry’s small independent businesses, as well as the impact on composers and songwriters.


The coalition’s Washington, D.C. team met with SBA officials and outlined the need for the agency to be active in addressing:

Annual certification in an alcohol management program should be required for all food and beverage employees, to keep customers safe.

Powdered alcohol might be banned in Michigan before it ever arrives


By Josh Thall

While Palcohol’s powdered alcohol is not even out for sale yet in the United States, many states, including Michigan, are already attempting to ban commercial use of the product.

Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, who is spearheading a bill to ban the use, sale or possession of powdered alcohol, said that the product is not necessary and that he has concerns of it being misused and it possibly leading to more deaths.

The bill has passed through the full Senate and has been referred to the House of Representatives committee on Regulatory Reform.

There are 39 states that have legislation introduced to ban powdered alcohol, and several other states have already enacted legislation to either ban or limit powdered alcohol.

By large majorities, Michigan voters say the state's alcohol regulations strike the right balance that allows adult consumers to have access to a wide range of beer and wine products - while pricing them affordably, according to a new bipartisan poll released today. The poll by Public Opinion Strategies and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research also showed that large majorities of Michigan voters oppose practices that would make alcohol more readily available, including selling alcohol at more gas stations and at farmers' markets.
