METHODOLOGY:

Beginning in FY 2018, this bill increases from 1.7 percent to 3.4 percent the percentages of the previous year's gross Liquor profits deposited into the Alcohol Abuse Prevention and Treatment Fund.  Gross profits were $194.5 million in FY 2016 according to the Liquor Commission. Had the increase been applicable to FY 2017, this would have resulted in an increase of approximately $3.3 million (6,613,000 at 3.4%, minus $3,330,650 at 1.7% = $3,282,350) in the amount deposited into the Fund.  This bill will indirectly decrease state general fund revenue, in that gross Liquor profits are transferred to the general fund at the end of each fiscal year.

 

The Department of Health and Human Services states the Governor's Commission on Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery, who disperses funds from the Fund, indicates the additional funds will be expended to continue existing work in prevention, treatment and recovery supports.
