Milliken orders study of
steep beer price increase
LANSING (UPI)-Gov. William
Milliken yesterday ordered a group of
top consumer protection advisors to in-
vestigate the steep beer price in-
creases that followed implementation
of Michigan's throwaway bottle ban.
Milliken also forwarded to the
cabinet-level group a list of current
liquor rules that could affect beer
prices if modified.
Earlier, Milliken had called for a
full-scale review of the beer prices.
"THERE HAVE been some problems
associated with our new law-as with
any dramatic innovation," Milliken
said. "One of the biggest of those
problems has been price increases in
the area of malt beverages."
Conducting the investigation will be
Milliken's Consumer Protection and
Regulatory Cabinet, made up of
representatives of the departments of
Licensing and Regulation, Labor,
Commerce, Management and Budget,
the attorney general's office and the
Michigan Consumers Council.
A joint legislative committee also is
looking into beer pries and is con-
sidering a full fledged audit of the price
hikes and whether they were justified
by the so-called bottle bill.
MILLIKEN SAID easing some of
Michian's currently stringent
regulations on beer advertising and
price posting may help lower prices by
The state Liquor Control Com-
mission, at Milliken's request, singled
out current rules which could have an
effect on prices, including one which
prohibits bars, party stores and liquor
stores from advertising the price of any
Another regulation pointed out in the
review is a law which assigns exclusive
sales territories to distributors,
meaning no more than one distributor
may serve a given area.
"I will be standing by awaiting
recommendations by my Consumer
Protection and Regulatory Cabinet,"
Milliken said. "It is hoped that changes
in this area will ease the burden placed
on both consumers and retailers by
spiraling prices," Milliken said.
