W. Va. Bill to Use Beer Tax Revenues for Addiction Programs

Freitag 5. Februar 2010 von htm

A Republican member of the West Virginia House of Delegates wants to raise the start’s beer tax from 1 cent per bottle to 2 cents and use the expected $10 million in proceeds to pay for addiction treatment and prevention, the Charleston Gazette reported Feb. 3. Delegate Bill Hamilton said the bill, HB4253, was inspired by his son’s struggle with addiction and the state’s lack of treatment services. The state’s alcohol industry vowed to fight the measure; a similar bill was killed last year. (Source: Join Together, 2/4/10)
