Our commitment to our members begins with advocacy for pragmatic and time-tested policies that stand strong in today’s ever-changing marketplace, both at the state and local level. A well-maintained Three-Tier regulatory system ensures that America does not return to the unscrupulous practices that led to Prohibition in 1920. Every year, as ABDI is faced with legislation that upholds and chips away at that very system, and our priority is to support legislation that protects Illinois consumers and advances sound alcohol policy in our state. Below are a few of the bills that we are keeping a close eye on.
