State Rep. DiGirolamo on HB 790

State Rep. Gene DiGirolamo spoke on the House Floor about HB790 (privatizing state liquor stores) on March 21st.  (It takes awhile for the House Journal to be posted online).  He makes three points about his opposition to the bill:  1) state store jobs would be lost, 2) it doesn't make economic sense, and 3) increased access to alcohol would lead to more social ills.

You can read his full remarks, and they are very articulate, in the House Journal for March 21st.  It starts on page 414.
