Liquor Study Commission
Function: A liquor study commission to examine Minnesota's total liquor trade structure, was created. The commission was to focus major attention on but not be limited to:
(a) Revenue effects of the trade as presently organized and as organized under any proposed arrangements;
(b) Monopolistic practices in the trade;
(c) Possible alternative arrangements of the trade;
(d) Practices in other states
The commission shall report its findings and a definite comprehensive plan for legislative and administrative action to the governor and legislature no later than January 15,1973.
The Liquor Study Commission held a total of ten public hearings, during which testimony was taken from a variety of public agencies and private groups. Following this series of hearings, the Commission broke down into subcommittees dealing with the issues of liquor retailing, liquor wholesaling and liquor licensing and taxation. Tentative drafts were written after the meetings of these subcommittees and the full Commission then held two drafting sessions to prepare the final draft.
No more than 15 members (see Final Report below for a full list of members).
