Hospitality Industry Groups Line Up Against Proposed Liquor Fees

One batch of Gov. Rick Snyder's proposed fee increases faced a united front of industry opposition in a Senate committee meeting this morning.

The Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC) is seeking 50 percent fee increases for several of its licenses, several of which haven't been altered since the 1970s, said MLCC Chair Andrew Deloney today.

LARA Fee Increases Expect To Fund IT Upgrades

While many of the state's license fees, especially for alcohol permits, may no longer be considered sustainable revenue streams for their respective programs and so need to be increased, a portion of those increases also is expected to pay for IT upgrades, an official with the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs said Wednesday.

One of the most controversial items in Governor Rick Snyder's proposed LARA budget for the 2015-16 fiscal year is a 50 percent increase in certain license fees that would then be halved after three years. The Senate Appropriations LARA Subcommittee has questioned the department about the decision to reduce the overall increase down the line, asserting that if legislators must vote for a fee increase, they'd prefer to only have to tend to the issue once.

Governor Proposes Liquor License Fee Increase for Fiscal Year 2015-2016

On Wednesday, Gov. Snyder proposed a 50 percent increase to licensing fees associated with the sale of beer, wine and spirits. The hospitality industry is an easy target for legislators, but we do not believe our members should have to shoulder the responsibility of balancing the budget.

Self-serve beer, wine on tap in Michigan?

Possibly coming soon to a bar or restaurant near you: tableside devices so customers can tap their own drinks such as wine, or a "wall of beer" where they can draw a favorite amber or stout from a row of self-serve spigots.

A rule change proposed by the state Liquor Control Commission would have Michigan join the large majority of states that have welcomed this imbibing method that the founder and CEO of a company called pourmybeer.com says he now has in 200 locations across the country. The website shows he has clients in 37 states.
