Franchot Announces Task Force to Study Maryland Liquor Laws

Frustrated by the state’s “outdated” regulation of alcohol, Comptroller Peter Franchot plans to create a task force to review Maryland liquor laws.

Franchot, a Democrat who collects alcohol taxes and enforces the liquor laws, is dubbing his effort “Reform on Tap.”

Franchot did not announce who would be on the task force, but said the group would hold public meetings this spring and summer with the goal of making recommendations in the fall. Any changes to state liquor law would require approval from the General Assembly.
