Liquor Privatization Law Could Drive Prices Up
WASHINGTON STATE (Metro) -- It's still not clear what liquor privatization under Initiative 1183 will mean for consumer prices.
John Guadnola, executive director of the Washington Beer and Wine Distributors Association tells heraldnet.com its possible smaller restaurants and retailers in rural areas could get socked with higher prices.
Under the state-run system, a bottle of liquor was the same price for everyone, regardless of location.
But now, some customers could be charged more if it takes longer to deliver the product.
