USA: A Lot of Bang for Booze Bucks

Freitag 2. Juli 2010 von htm

Marin Institute has just published a new report that chronicles how Big Alcohol spent $3 million in campaign donations and lobbying expenditures in 2009. The list of legislators on the take includes key committee members and the governor’s “Budget Reform Now” PAC. The report uncovers what Big Alcohol got for its money, including the defeat of increased alcohol taxes and a proposed Charge for Harm mitigation fee that if passed, would have provided the cash-strapped state with $1.4 billion in new revenue.
