  11. According to an article from The Oregonian, money continues to flow into the effort to privatize Oregon liquor sales.The distilled Spirits Council of the United States donated another $100,000, being a total of $300,000 so far. Combined with large contributions from Safeway and Fred Meyer, the grocery based group raised about $2,000,000. Opponent of privatization also are raising money to fight a possible November ballot measure. Oregon Beverage PAC, which represents beer and wine distributors, recently received a $63,200 donation from Young’s Columbia. They are one of the biggest contributors in the Northwest. What is this initiative all about? Privatization backers, who call themselves Oregonians for Competition, want to allow retail stores with more than 10,000 square feet to be able to stock and sell liquor. They’re working on an initiative that would make wholesale changes in the way booze is bought and sold in the state. Where are we today with this battle? At this moment, the continued wrangle over the issue has slowed down the process of anything getting accomplished. Supporters can’t start collecting signatures until the dispute if resolved. What do consumers have to say? “We’ll be paying more for a worse selection of both booze and food, and replacing local businesses with international corporations. No thanks” “Washington prices skyrocketed because lawmakers, in a fit of greed and vindictiveness, jacked up taxes on alcohol. I live in CA right now and liquor is sold in the grocery stores. There are also liquor stores who keep the doors open just fine. I patron both.” “The loss of revenue would be replaced in the form of a steep alcohol tax, just like Washington. There is no way that does not happen. You can say “limit the taxes” as much as you want, but that’s just a slogan, not a plan for replacing lost revenue.” What do you think?
  12. According to an article from the TTB Weekly News, there have been some major changes to the Permits Online program (PONL).The PONL is a web-based system that will facilitate and streamline the online submission, routing, and internal processing of original and amended applications to the Alcohol and Tabaco and Trade Bureau (TTB). Those applying for federal authorization to start a business in the alcohol, tobacco, or firearms and ammunition industries are no longer required to submit original documentation for bond forms and power of attorney forms. Although these forms can still be accepted, there is now a Permits Online System. Why is this system better? The TTB Permits Online system allows you to electronically file original applications and to amend those applications. Using this free system eliminates the need to complete and mail in most forms, which saves you time and effort and generally results in faster processing of your application Previously, applicants were required to submit paper copies of these forms, which could prolong the application approval process. With these changes, you can send bonds and Powers of Attorney forms to us electronically, eliminating the need to mail us paper forms. Expanding the uses of newer technologies is part of an ongoing effort to provide you with the programs and tools you need to help ensure a lawful, thriving future for our TTB-regulated industries. Click HERE for the Permits Online Customer User Guide, where is will help you follow the steps.
