Legislature To Examine Liquor Laws

Legislature To Examine Liquor Laws
South Dakota lawmakers are expected to consider legislation this winter that would remove limits on the number of liquor licenses that may be issued in cities and counties.

State Representative Ed Olson of Mitchell says each local government should be allowed to set its own policy on liquor licensing.

State law now uses population as a basis for capping the number of licenses available in any city, with some exceptions.

Those who want the law changed say it artificially limits business by keeping many popular chain restaurants from opening because they cannot get liquor licenses.

Opponents, however, say there are plenty of places to drink already. They say elimination of the cap on liquor licenses would hurt the blue-sky value of existing licenses.
