State preparing in case liquor sales get approved

State preparing in case liquor sales get approved


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - One of 3 questions voters might see on the November ballot this year could make alcohol sales legal in all 75 Arkansas counties.

Even if voters approve that measure, there will still be lots of work to do at state and local levels to implement the plan.

Arkansas Business Online Editor Lance Turner says officials are already making plans.

Michael Langley, the director of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Division, tells Arkansas Business that he's already been thinking through the possible new law.

If voters do approve the Arkansas Alcoholic Beverage Amendment he's got a plan of action on tap to implement the law, which would go into effect on July 1.
