Sen. Karen Mayne, D-West Valley City, is sponsoring SB 155 – Alcohol Beverage Control Budget Amendments. This bill modifies provisions related to the budget of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (DABC) as well as addresses the department’s base budget to provide use of specific funds for specified purposes.
The Department may retain each fiscal year from the Liquor Control Fund, $1,000,000 that the department may use for: capital equipment purchases, performance awards for department employees, and information technology enhancements.
Todd Losser, Executive Director of UPEA, testified in favor of the bill as it provides additional avenues for employees of the DABC.
This bill is currently on the Senate Floor for 2nd Reading/Consent Calendar and UPEA will continue to monitor any changes and update our members.
