ILBA AND INDUSTRY NEWS //
What a mess the 2009 bill S1148 created. A few special interest groups and Executive Branch friends trying to take over your investment - for some of us our only 401k. Unbelievable! The quota license for many = the ability to borrow $ from the bank. This episode in 2009 changed all that!
Quota licensee owners were horrified to learn they were being turned down operating $ from their bank - a direct result from the 2009 legislative attempt. That legislation, although it failed, created a case of collateral damage for quota licensees.
Every year since 2009, ILBA has had to raise $ to fight similar bills. As before, it is always the same ignorant statement - liquor licenses create economic development. Actually, Quota Licensing creates a safer dependable society which helps promote and secure Economic Development. Know the truth - read the data: more licenses = more DUI related infractions, domestic violence, under aged drinking, and deaths. The cost to society is significant. DO NOT BE FOOLED!
The testimony before the Senate State Affairs Committee was originally uploaded to YouTube on Mar 23, 2009 by Idaho Public Television: Idaho Reports Web Extra; however, it has now been removed. :(
FORTUNATELY THIS BILL FAILED ON THE FLOOR OF THE HOUSE AFTER A LONG DEBATE AND THE CHALLENGE BY ONE LEGISLATOR TO HAVE THE LEGISLATURE READ THE FULL BILL BEFORE VOTING. TAKE A LOOK AT THE VOTE. SOME OF THESE PEOPLE ARE STILL IN THE LEGISLATURE TODAY.

PLEASE WRITE TO YOUR LEGISLATORS AND TELL THEM YOU DO NOT WANT THE QUOTA SYSTEM DISMANTLED OR CITY COUNCILS AND COUNTY COMMISSIONERS LEGISLATED PERMISSION TO ISSUE LIQUOR LICENSES. THIS IS A DANGEROUS COMBINATION FOR ALL CITIES AND COUNTIES - FINANCIALLY AND PERSONALLY.
