Treasurer seeks overhaul of ‘unwieldy’ Mass. alcohol laws

The Boston Globe reports that Massachusetts Treasurer Deborah Goldberg, who oversees the state’s alcohol regulators, is set to launch a sweeping review of the state’s liquor laws and regulations, calling the current rules outdated, unclear, and burdensome for businesses.The ambitious effort will be led by a task force of brewers, distillers, winemakers, wholesalers, retailers, and legal experts to be convened this fall. The group will be asked to produce recommendations for legislators to consider next year.

Goldberg said the task force will also consider beefing up the ABCC, which has 15 inspectors to police more than 30,000 licensees.“When I tell people in other states how few inspectors we have, their eyes pop out,” Goldberg said.
