Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Legislation restructuring the liquor license fee schedule for small businesses in Michigan has passed in the State House.

The bill, sponsored by 110th District State Representative Scott Dianda, changes the way the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs calculates the cost of a liquor license for first-year business owners.

The Calumet Democrat says currently, liquor license fees are due on April 1st of each year.

If a new store owner were to apply for a liquor license and receive it in January, that business would owe the full amount of the license fee at that time.

Then, come April 1st, they would owe the full amount again.

The measure prorates the fee quarterly as needed.

The bill now goes to the Senate for their consideration.
