Dianda’s Bill On Liquor Licenses Passes Committee

The House Regulatory Reform Committee has approved a liquor license bill from State Representative Scott Dianda.

The bill seeks to prorate the cost of a new liquor license so that businesses are not paying the license fee twice in one year.

Dianda said this is common-sense legislation to help new small businesses who want a liquor license set up shop in Michigan.

He added that pro-rating a liquor license fee for new businesses will still allow the state to collect its fees while not overcharging and causing problems for the business.

Here is the full press release from Dianda’s office:

Statement from state Rep. Scott Dianda (D-Calumet) on the House Regulatory Reform committee’s approval of his liquor license bill, House Bill 4507:

LANSING —Today, the House Regulatory Reform committee approved state Rep. Scott Dianda’s (D-Calumet) bill, House Bill 4507, to prorate the cost of a new liquor license so that businesses are not paying the license fee twice in one year. In response, state Rep. Dianda  issued the following statement:

“I thank the committee chair and members for their support of my bill to make sure that new businesses are not charged the full liquor license fee twice in one year. This is common-sense legislation to help new small businesses who want a liquor license set up shop in Michigan. The first year is critically important for a new business, and extra fees from the state can sometimes create problems. Pro-rating a liquor license fee for new businesses will still allow the state to collect its fees while not overcharging and causing problems for the business.”
