Government Shut down re-cap

In lieu of the most recent Government shut down, we at the Minnesota Licensed Beverage Association (MLBA) want to express our gratitude to you the retailers, in assisting us in bringing closure to this issue. Without the support, persistence and patience of the Minnesota Retail Liquor Industry, this issue would not have been resolved so quickly and effectively. We are currently drafting legislation for the upcoming 2012 Legislative session to prevent the interruption of legal commerce affecting the liquor and hospitality industry from doing business during these unpleasant interruptions. We wish to thank all those that assisted us in our efforts to keep the retail liquor businesses strong and viable.
