Program: Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control
Finding or Recommendation: Recommend approval of the fee increases.
Further Detail

In recent years, the department has experienced growth in expenditures due to increased assistance to local law enforcement agencies and increased personnel costs. As a result, annual expenditures exceeded revenues into the Alcohol Beverages Control Fund. Revenues generated from the fee proposal are estimated to support department activities in the budget and out-years.
