2018 Senate Bill 1219: Revise alcohol control regulatory system details
Introduced by Sen. Tory Rocca (R) on November 27, 2018
To revise details of Michigan’s expansive and extraordinarily detailed and controlling regulations on the manufacture, distribution, sale and service of alcohol. Specifically, to revise provisions that permit the sale of drinks at university conference centers and golf course clubhouses. This and many similar bills work by making minor changes to "terms of art" used by regulators (which often have no connection to the plain-English words used in them), in ways that expand or contract the privileges or restrictions on particular regulated interests, almost always in a protectionist, anti-competitive direction. In this case those entities benefited are universities and golf courses.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the Senate Regulatory Reform Committee on November 27, 2018
