As I highlighted in the midday report, beer drinkers and sellers are living easy in this state. Imagine if the governor and the legislature taxed beer like other states. As a beer drinker, I wouldn't mind that at all. A few cents would raise a lot of revenue, at a time the state needs it.
Tax cigarettes? They'll increase that again, no doubt. But how much more can you tax cigarettes?
I know my stance here will not be popular, but look at the tax primer and realize beer is a likely place to get it.
I know the tavern and distributor associations will fight and fight. But that's my budget suggestion of the day.
