HARTFORD, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Friday launched another campaign to change the laws governing the state’s liquor sales with some strong rhetoric for lawmakers inclined to maintain the current alcohol pricing structure.
“People who don’t support this support Connecticut consumers being gouged,” he said at a press conference.
Malloy, who has weighed in on alcohol sales during previous legislative sessions, is seeking a several changes this year. He wants to:
- Change a set minimum bottle price law by letting retailers sell alcohol at cost.
- Allow alcohol sales until 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 p.m. on Sunday.
- Increase a limit on the number of shops a package store owner can run from three to six.
