Minnesota Lawmakers Debate Raising Taxes on Alcohol [VIDEO]

NNCNow.com

It’s been 26 years since the last Minnesota tax hike on alcohol, but if state lawmakers have their way there will be another one soon to help make up for the state’s budget deficit.

KBJR TV is reporting that house DFL lawmakers on Wednesday discussed a possible seven cent increase on a beer, but lawmakers say it’s focused at the wholesale level.  At this point it’s hard to gauge how much more beer drinkers would have to pay for a drink.

The Restaurant Trade Association is urging the House to reject the bill, saying increased taxes would result in lost jobs without successfully curbing alcohol abuse.
