LOUISVILLE, KY (11/7/12) – The Governor’s Task Force on the Study of Alcoholic Beverage Control Laws in Kentucky will hold a public forum at 6 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 8 at the Mayor’s Gallery, 572 W. Jefferson St., Louisville. The Gallery is located on the 4th floor.
“The forum is an opportunity for the public to share with the Task Force its thoughts and ideas on the issues being discussed by the three committees,” said Task Force Chair Bob Vance. “Whether it is licensing, local option elections or public safety issues, we want to know what the public thinks and make certain everyone has an opportunity to have input into our final report to Gov. Beshear.”
The 22-member task force was created in July and will recommend to the Governor by January 2013 ways to build a consensus around solutions that address statutory problems, policies and regulations. According to Vance, these include the number of license types in Kentucky, the impact of numerous local option elections on local government entities and how improvements can be made to insure public safety.
Three committees addressing licensing, local option elections and public safety have been meeting since August and will present a draft report to the full task force in December.
