Failing to advance from committee, House Bill 793, sought for the purpose of reducing the incidence of domestic violence and suicides, to increase the excise taxes imposed on spirits, malt liquor, fortified wines and hard cider and the sales tax imposed on the sale of liquor sold in establishments for consumption on or off premises. The excise tax on beer would have increased .15 cents/gallon to .50 cents/gallon.
