MLBA Legislative Update

The House Appropriations Subcommittees passed their budget recommendations with no liquor license fee increases and today the Senate Appropriations Subcommittees did the same. The recommendations will head to the full Appropriations Committee and we believe they will agree with the subcommittees. The initial proposal was to increase liquor license fees by 50%.

However, the fight for liquor license fee increases is not over. While it appears the full legislature is in support of not increasing liquor license fees, there is still work to be done to ensure it's not raised for our members.

If you haven’t already, let your legislator know that you are against the liquor license fee increase and that you fully support the MLBA efforts.

The MLBA will continue to lead the fight and keep you informed of our progress.

Could powdered alcohol be sold in Michigan?

LANSING, MI -- The federal government recently approved the sale of a powdered alcohol product called Palcohol, but it's up to Michigan to decide if the product would be allowed here.

Law Enforcement Kick Off Spring Drunk Driving Crackdown

What: The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning is partnering with the Michigan Licensed Beverage Association to help promote a spring drunk driving crackdown. During the effort, more than 1,100 bars and restaurants across the state will use special drink coasters with a basketball-themed, designated driver message.

Law enforcement officers from police departments, sheriff’s offices and the Michigan State Police in 26 counties will conduct federally funded drunk driving patrols through April 7 as part of the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.

March Message from Michigan Lottery Commissioner M. Scott Bowen

Popular Pull Tab Games Set to Return

Bar and restaurant retailers are an important part of the Michigan Lottery’s ongoing success. Lottery players enjoy playing Club Keno and pull tabs games in their favorite local establishments, and retailers benefit from Lottery sales and redemption commissions, longer visits from patrons plus additional food and beverage sales.


The Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) has recently approved labels for Palcohol, a powdered form of alcohol manufactured through an encapsulation process. This approval will enable Palcohol to be sold legally in the US where allowed.

However, several states have already enacted laws or policies to prohibit the manufacturing, possession and sale of the product, and several more are considering the same.

What do you think about allowing or prohibiting the sale of a powdered alcohol product in Michigan?

Quarterly Newsletter from Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development

Fee Increases Needed to Help Fill Structural Deficit

By Kevin Besey, Director, Food and Dairy Division,

Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) is at a point where it can no longer meet the demand for compliance assistance for new and growing food businesses and also evaluate food establishments often enough to assure the public’s food safety.

MDARD has been meeting with food industry associations to discuss new ways of doing business to meet the needs of our growing industry and maintain a sound, effective food safety program in Michigan. MDARD’s proposed fee increases have been a starting point for these discussions. Industry meetings, which began in the summer of 2014, will resume this year, starting in March 2015.
