Fifty Three to Fifty Six: Hintz and Booze

Hintz and Booze

Rep Hintz is sponsoring a bill that would exempt restaurants where alcoholic beverages are 50 percent or less of gross receipts from counting under the state's liquor license quota.

According to Hintz:

"It empowers local government to determine if they want to grant a license. This returns something to that local level,"

The Northwestern Editorial page also said the following:

"Hooray to State Sen. Carol Roessler, R-Oshkosh, state Rep. Gordon Hintz, D-Oshkosh, and a refreshingly bipartisan chorus of state legislators backing a welcome change to state liquor-license law."

If this bill goes through it will also increase the amount of illegal gambling machines in our city. I know no one likes to talk about these machines and the illegal cash payouts that go with them. But a liquor license gives a business the ability to have these machines. Something to think about. Gambling addiction is a real problem in society.
