The debate about the regulation of liquor continues

Today at noon, KUOW’s The Conversation will focus on the latest liquor privatization initiative.  As the debate about the regulation of alcohol in Washington continues, public health and underage drinking-related concerns should be considered.  Following are some resources to help inform the debate.

• The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Task Force on Community Preventive Services recently recommended against further privatization.

• The UW Alcohol and Drug Institute (ADAI) developed a brief providing background information on privatization issues.

• Last week, I updated the coalition website to include information about privatization. I will continue to update it as more information becomes available.

The full initiative may be viewed online.
