Another bill proposes privatizing WA's liquor system

Another bill that attempts to privatize our state's liquor system has been introduced in the state Senate.  SB 5933 would close state liquor stores and private companies could purchase the right to run liquor stores.

This bill was introduced on the heals of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) releasing a recommendation against liquor privatization.
