Neb. Alcohol Industry Opposes Beer Tax to Fund Treatment

Dienstag 9. Februar 2010 von htm

A proposal to use beer-tax revenues to fund an alcohol detoxification program in the notorious town of Whiteclay, Neb., is being opposed by alcohol industry lobbyists, the Omaha World-Herald reported Feb. 4.
Whiteclay is home to four stores that sell only beer, and most of that to residents of the „dry“ nearby Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The reservation is plagued by alcoholism, and Whiteclay has been dubbed the „Skid Row of the Plains.“ (Source: Join Together, 2/8/10)
