And People Wonder Why I Don't Vote Democrat

Beer tax proposal rises next week

Rep. Terese Berceau, D-Madison, and State Sen. Fred Risser, D-Madison, announced today they would introduce legislation next week to raise the beer tax for the first time since 1969.

Under their proposal, the tax on a 12-ounce bottle of beer would increase from 2.4 to 3 cents a bottle, generating approximately $40 million a year for alcohol abuse prevention, treatment and enforcement.
Thanks to Owen for the pointer.
