OLCC Says "No" To Additional Surcharge on Spirits

By Jim McCoy Wed 12th June NewsOregon Liquor Control Commissionsurcharges
The Oregon Liquor Control Commission has rejected placing an additional 25-cent-a-bottle surcharge on the price of distilled spirits. The commissioners voted 3-2 in a conference call Wednesday morning. If the surcharge had passed, it would have raised an estimated $16.2 million for the upcoming two-year state budget cycle. Commissioners Michael Harper, Rob Patridge and Robert Rice voted against the surcharge. It was supported by commissioners Cassandra Skinner and Pamela Weatherspoon. Commissioners recently extended a temporary 50-cent surcharge that has been in effect since April 2009.
