Gov. Dannel Malloy has reportedly made revisions to his proposal to change Connecticut's liquor laws.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is offering some changes to his proposed overhaul of Connecticut's liquor laws, hoping to reach consensus with the state's liquor and alcohol industry.
A list of suggested revisions, distributed on Monday to some state lawmakers and obtained by The Associated Press, revamps the Democratic governor's original proposed changes to wholesale pricing rules, limits on package store permits, rules for minimum retail prices and quantity discounts from wholesalers.
The governor's consumer protection commissioner is expected to present Malloy's revised legislation at a public hearing on Tuesday before the General Assembly's General Law Committee.
Malloy still wants to allow retail alcohol sales on Sundays, extend hours of operation and allow some convenience stores to sell beer. Malloy said his bill would help recapture $570 million in sales.
